It’s been a while…

I happened to see my own blog in my RSS feed the other day and I was completely shocked when I realized I had not done a blog post for almost a full year. I’ve had gaps in the past, but I was posting more regularly a year ago and suddenly stopped. I have no idea why it’s been so long, but I’m going to see if I can get a streak going again.

I’ll start with this simple post. I was walking through Ginza late on Sunday night (on the way home from the fabulous Dhaba in Kyōbashi), when I saw this in front of the Apple store:

It struck me for a few reasons: (1) it hadn’t occurred to me at all that it was the anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death (and I hadn’t seen anything on twitter or in the news on the weekend explicitly referencing it); (2) just a few hours earlier, I had, by chance, watched this video of Steve Jobs at the 1997 WWDC (which is surprisingly still very relevant today; and (3) it was such a modest offering (I suppose I expected that the number of huge Apple fans in Japan would result in a bigger street-side memorial).

Anyway, just a small moment captured and externalised. I didn’t linger.

I used the WordPress iPad app to do this blog entry – it crashed three times in the process, so I’m not sure how much it’ll add to the efficiency of doing blog posts on the fly. However, it does seem good for quick entries and/or posting quick photos from my iPhone camera roll. We’ll see…
