After a long hiatus, Boing Boing is relaunching its guestblogger program. We are really excited to have Lisa Katayama contribute for the next couple of weeks.
We asked Lisa to write a bit about herself:
My name is Lisa Katayama, and I write about technology, human rights, and Japanese culture for magazines like Wired, Make, and PopSci. My blog, TokyoMango, is an archive of strange news, fun products, and cultural tidbits from my native Japan. I also write a column called MangoBot, a biweekly collection of silly musings about the future on Gawker's io9.
I'm super psyched to be guest blogging on Boing Boing! For the next two weeks, I will keep you posted on what's happening in Japan, quirky findings from the Internet, and some of my recent adventures like hanging out with the Dalai Lama's bipolar brother in India, writing fiction stories about my dog Ruby, and befriending female inmates at state prisons in California.
When I'm not writing, I like to rock climb, play volleyball, travel, buy knitting books, and obsess over my minpin Ruby. Feel free to email me with tips or just to say hi! Happy reading!
