A book I recently read reminded me that Dr. Ken Sakamura proposed and had been taking the leadership for Open Architecture, foreseeing the Ubiquitous Computing era, we are now stepping into, for quite a long time up until now. It was, he says in the book, 30 years ago and away back of Linux. In 1984, when he started TRON Project, (TRON stands for The Real-time Operating system Nucleus), he earnestly advocated the concept of Open Architecture. Being in the Ubiquitous or Pervasive computing era, TRON plays key roles in various fields, such as mobile phone systems, consumer electronics, automobile navigation systems, and so on. TRON will be continuously enhanced and applied to more products and systems which will be newly developed in the future. TRON is just one of many things Japanese developed. Believing that new innovation will be continuously made and delivered from Japan, I’m in a happy feeling tonight. I wish if I were an innovator….
