This afternoon I visited Tokyo University and was shown a pretty nifty application. Starting in 1990, they started building an application that aids in the design of - and simulation of - seagoing vessels. That was a pretty interesting application - it uses JUN for display, and is used by ship building companies here. Then they showed me another application that uses the same framework - but aids in the design of satellites. Very interesting stuff - it's always cool to see the things our customers are doing with the product.
After the visit, the office staff took me out to a very nice dinner - restaurant called Luke at the top of a downtown tower. The food just kept coming, and it was all good. The steak in particular was just amazing. I can't thank the folks here enough for the kindness they've shown me. It was too bad that it was raining - the view of Tokyo from the restaurant patio was excellent - but would have been far better in clear weather. Even so, the food was good, the conversation better, and the customer visits have been very good. I'm looking forward to the magazine interview tomorrow - and then it's back on the plane for the long, long flight home.
