They all look alike…

I’m in Japan, presenting at LinuxWorld Expo, meeting with Novell partners here, stuff like that.

The Novell Japan team had a reception for their team, partners, and visiting employees. Visting employees were asked to make a short introduction speech. When I got up, several of my Japanese counterparts chided me, saying “Tom Cruise…Last Samurai.” Nice compliment and all, but…jeez! what a reach.

I was a guero growing up in San Jose, and I’ve been a gweilo in Hong Kong. Here, I get to be the dude who avenged the last of the samurai. That’s fun. Domo Arigato, Nippon!
