Writer/translator and researcher living in Tokyo, Japan. I am the Japanese language editor for Global Voices (with Scilla Alecci). I blog in English and in Japanese, and Twitter in both. From a research perspective, I am interested in the intersection of translation and participatory media, the potential of community translation, and the contrasts of openness and difference. From a social perspective, I have written about changes in the local media landscape in Japan and what these changes mean for the future of news. I am also one of the few people covering issues of net regulation in Japan for an international audience.

I'm always interested in talking about any of the above topics, if you have a venue and an audience, please contact me.

Japan: Final Report on Internet Regulation

The idea that a country boasting one of the world's most active net cultures, with possibly the world's largest blogosphere and almost certainly its largest online forum, would attempt to regulate online content within its borders may appear to some not only far-fetched, but infeasible. Plans unveiled (with little fanfare)...
