Hi Benny and lists,

I have never heard of him, but according to
Takashi's description, it's
certainly interesting if he can relate his experience to the Wikipedian
community in the event of disaster, the community response in the form of a
wiki website, and so forth. Even if he doesn't deserve the prime time, he
should be contacted at least. Does his work also crosses path with Japanese
Wikipedia, Takashi, and what's his background?
Thanks for your interests. I'm not sure whether his work has crossed path with
Japanese Wikipedia (that's because I have not comprehensively checked his work.
It does not mean he did nothing for it.) I'll add lines here if I
found further details.
According to his self-bio:
(written in Japanese, sorry)
He worked for a publishing company serving as an editor for a year,
from International Christian University. After leaving the publisher,
he worked as
self-employed and later joined Yahoo! Japan. He worked for Y! search,
Staff Blog, Y! Chiebukuro (Q&A UGM), Search Ranking, Y! Encyclopedia (free
search of a proprietary encyclopedia) and so on.
Beside his professional work, he started Academic Resource Guide (ARG,
) since 1999 as a voluntary work. In 2009, he
left Y! Japan and
made ARG a private firm.
