Tokyo Linux Users Group

Jim started the Linux conference on Twics, Tokyo's first English-language Internet-connected watering hole, back in 1994. Given another shared interest in eating, this quickly morphed into a lunch-and-Linux group known as the Tokyo Linux Users Group.

Jim has a long history of playing with computers, from the Logo Lab at MIT in the 70s, to Heathkit and Atari in the 80s, to a design group for Chinon and later Creative Technology in the 90s. He went to New Zealand for a one year education software project that stretched to 7 years, but is now back in Tokyo.
