The opportunities afforded by affiliating together all the JUGs residing in the United States as part of an umbrella JUG-USA organization seem self-evident to me. In my efforts to bring JUGs around the country on board, I am learning that this is simply not the case. So, here are my thoughts on this matter. What JUG-USA Affiliation IS! There are three simple requirements a Java User Group (JUG)...

It is my hope that a true synergy will emerge from this undertaking. The original impetus for the formation of JUG-USA was to work towards establishing a single Federal non-profit that any affiliated JUG could take advantage of in order to take in...

This is a koban near my house. It's a small police station, and normally there are one or two policemen inside. They do all sorts of things ranging from finding directions for you, taking care of losts and founds, or scolding a shoplifter (or so I hear.) The bicycle you see next to the koban is used to patrol the neighborhood. The small yellow box hanging from the window shows the number of...

(Obviously, my flight to Tokyo was quite peaceful.) Visiting Tokyo is always an enjoyable experience. I know the place well, so I can get around, I have friends, and I know where and what I want to...
