I talk a lot of shit about Japan when it comes to IT. I want to put my money where my mouth is and operate a startup that poaches actually good talent from these dinosaur companies, pay them well and run a lean-and-mean consulting company that can solve problems nobody else can.

The whole Japanese system of employment is like the exact opposite of silicon valley. new programmers are recruited immediately from college in yearly job fairs, and are then trained to be extreme specialists in what the company decides it needs. If the company decides it needs PHP programmers it will recruit fresh graduates, train them in the bare minimum amount of PHP knowledge to do their jobs and nothing more. These programmers usually have low ability to adapt to new technology or think creatively. Then they suffer through low wages for the first ten years of their career until they become middle management, learning nothing along the way. The mere act of programming is treated like grunt work, and people with the most programming experience are expected to become project managers or middle managers instead of "getting their hands dirty" with code. The amount of people who could be considered good programmers by American standards is disproportionately tiny because of this rigid way of doing things.
IT skill in amerika: "I can host a server and maintain it and learn new skills when needed."

IT skill in japan: "I can only operate Windows Server 2003 and if something happens, I call tech support. If I am asked to do anything other than this, my brain explode."
"Since the #Tiananmen Square Massacre, June 4 has been considered a “sensitive” date for the Party. There has been steady pressure on the Chinese regime to correct the label of “riot” that was given to the 1989 student movement."
