Re: [tlug] introduction: just moved to Kobe, any linux activity out there ?

On the other side of the pond, literally 5h by ferry from San-no-miya, in Takamatsu, there is a Setouchi Linux User Group that has little activity but is not totally extinct.

I worked on the alife system called Tierra by Tom Ray and others, and helped develop the network version of it.  If you've ever read "Artificial Life" by Steven Levy, you've seen the discussion of that project.  I moved back to US for a few years when my lab closed.  The wife and I decided we missed Japan, and we decided to retire here.
