[promo] If you are learning Lojban, or want to speak a machine-parsable constructed language, please help this Area 51 proposal come to life: Lojban Language & Usage. Lojbanists, e'o ko sidju


I'm a software engineer. One of the rare species who use Python at work in Japan and also telecommute.

Currently I'm working on:

comment Why do Japanese speakers have difficulty pronouncing “L”?
