I'm a computer scientist, and last spring I had to opportunity to work in Japan briefly. My time there sparked an interest in the language, and over the past year I have been diligent about trying to learn Japanese. I would really like to find ways to incorporate my interest in Japanese into my work, since Japan is such a big player in the technology arena. I'm curious whether other computer scientists have studied in Japan, worked in Japan, or used Japanese regularly as part of their job. If so, I would love to chat about how you accomplished this and what you got out of it.
