ABOUT THIS SITE

This website is my scratch pad, and I will show and talk about anything spontaneously in English and Japanese. Hopefully, this could be more than just blog, as I can integrate any technologies into the site, which is usually challenging in normal blog CMS.

このサイトは私の落書き帳で、どんなことでも突拍子もなく英語や日本語で話していきたいと思います。ブログよりも多少良いものになればと望んでいます。普通のブログサイトでは自由にウェブ技術を組み込むのは難しいことですが、幸いこのサイトは自前なので色々なことが技術的に実現できると思います。
