Introduction

Welcome to my Japanese Page. As many readers of this page will know, I have an on-going interest in Japan, its people and language. This has led to a number of activities bringing together Japanese and my professional activities in computing and telecommunications. I have assembled this set of pages: (a) to provide information about a number of my projects in the area of Japanese computing and dictionaries, (b) to provide links to some of the resources available on the WWW on Japanese matters.

In The News

  • These pages were mentioned in an article in the Asahi Evening News, by Andrew Horvat, whose pages have a link below.
  • William Gordon has written an extended essay on these pages and the WWWJDIC dictionary server.
  • David Jolly mentioned WWWJDIC in an article in the International Herald Tribune (backup copy as the original has expired).
  • Alexander Jacoby mentioned WWWJDIC in an article in the Japan Times.
  • In early 2014 I did an interview for the JQ Magazine, which is for the JET Alumni Community. It covers my engagement with Japan, as well as some comments about the JET program, etc.

Contact and Links

  • Feel free to email me at: jimbreen@gmail.com about the various Japanese projects described on this page. I will try very hard to reply quickly, but I get a lot of mail, and long letters may take a while. If you are thinking of emailing me about other things, especially to ask me questions not related to my projects, please read this page first, as it may save us both some time. (Also, Gmail is prone to classifying regular mail as spam and I sometimes don't notice things in the spam folder. Put "Japan" or "Japanese" somewhere in the Subject to catch my attention, and if I don't reply, try sending it again.)
  • If you want to link from this page, please use this page, which has both advice and a submission form. Submissions are added semi-automatically to this page (I will probably edit what you suggest.)

LINKS TO INTERESTING SITES

Most of this page is made up of links to some interesting Web sites relating to Japan and Japanese information. They are broadly broken down by category (see the menu list to the left).

Some of the links are dead; I am may try to re-establish them, but in the meantime I have marked them with a THUMBS-DOWN(thumbs-down.) Please let me know if you encounter a dead link.
