Reading NY paper I got at Penn Station.
The news about Jobs made me think about how much he has done to change the course of my life, in a good way. My first Mac was an iMac – I had the first Bondi Blue one and spent so much time having fun with it. Without that machine and the convenience of the always-online fast Internet at the college, I probably had a very different experience with computers.
Now I am writing this from an iPad on a train. Even after he’s resigned as the Apple CEO, I still believe technologies will still change our lives in positive ways and we all can be a part of it.
It’s my last day of a 3-weeks US trip. Taking the afternoon off to enjoy the sun. Yet I’m still blogging – from the Sheep Meadow in the Central Park. What can I say, I just really like it. 🙂
For some reason, I’m growing to like parks more and more as I get older. Last night my friend from Tokyo told me about the yearly pass for Sinjuku Gyoen (Imperial Park). I’m excited to get one when I get back. I better take out my new(ish) digital camera and use it more. And read books.
Had a fun day of working at New Work City with Sheri and Shin. Great setup and atmosphere, wish I could come here more often.
Off to dinner now!
Sheri is now in NYC! We’ll start off another day of coworking with some cute cake 🙂
Blogging from my iPad on the backseat of Yellow Mini Cooper, with my blog buddies Yusuke & Takashi, and Karen.
Really liked Kirakuya Japanese restaurant – they had yummy nasu dengaku (grilled eggplant with miso topping), nabeyaki udon noodle, and everything else we had was just really good. The place made me feel as if I was in Tokyo.
On my way back, I thought of Ben Folds’ song “Adelaide”.
A voice says
You could live anywhere and I say
Because I want to
Because I want to
I really really want to
Why Tokyo? Why NY? Because you want to.
(btw. Ben Folds no longer lives in Adelaide but see Wikipedia for details if you’re curious.)
