Hello everyone! I’m hoping to use this blog as a way to keep everyone updated on what’s going on with my while I’m living in working in Tokyo. Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think!
A word about the title of the blog (Pacific Overtures)… As some of you may know, I’m a bit of a musical theater nerd. My favorite musical theater composer is Stephen Sondheim (he’s kind of a big deal). One of his lesser known works is a little musical called “Pacific Overtures”. It chronicles the forceful opening of Japan to the west by the Perry expedition. You can read more about it here. But rather than reading about it, maybe you should just watch this number. I think it speaks for itself!
As I am here in Japan opening a new market for Optimizely, I think it’s entirely appropriate.
