Wow! Stop complaining? I did not see it coming. I am on their side (those in Rikuzentakata). What the people in that town are facing and fighting against deserve to be heard. Japan's paralysis is truly heart breaking.

Junko, Thank you for your article. I believe Japanese people do not know about what you pointed out in the article. The sad thing is that Japanese newspapers hide this kind of information. BR,

I'm sorry. I didn't really read your article carefully and was not expecting the author to reply.

Why comment on something you have not read? Beyond moronic.

After the Xenia, Ohio tornado, you could still see damage scars twenty-five years later. I have been to Sendai, Japan before the tsunami. It will be many years before they can even restore the basic services, so I suspect they will be rebuilding for many years to come. These things take time. There are no immediate miricles for planning a new environment and getting everything cleaned up and rebuilt. Patience please. Just my opinion.

Why is it, every time someone raises an issues that needs some social involvement, some non-participant cries, "Stop complaining"? Junko, you are doing a wonderful service by reporting on this. Perhaps it will embarrass the people who have been enlisted to resolve this problem enough to entice them to do the jobs they are being paid to do. Anyone that believes the public should "stop complaining" and put up with whatever injustice is thrown at them is being completely unrealistic. Nothing happens unless someone complains. Only a Mother Teresa does something completely out of the goodness of her heart. And the world is lacking in Mother Teresa's.

Well put. The world won't become a better place if we all just keep our heads down and won't raise an issue.

"Japan’s fat, complacent, mostly male bureaucracy." Why is it when results are not found, people start complaining? And when results are met, they are congratulated. It's not just this, this author complains about everything Japan: Panasonic, Sharp, Sony were just the recent victims of her global opinions that would be better suited to a local japanese news paper.

That what I always found in this EE Times site from this author. What she want to seek in this site for Japan. For good or bad for Japan. When she given some article about Japan problem more uneducated opinions or comments is given and not many good suggestion especially from Japan haters. Its not matter if Japan response to it or not. Or it will be better not posting article about Japan at all. This is technology website not problem website. Thanks.

It is not an issue about stop complaining. The issue is about a realistic understanding about the magnitude of the damage they need to undo. Complaining about something not being done instantly creates a needless redirection of resources that in the end takes longer to implement than the initial plan. Until you have seen a city rebuilt, you have no idea about all of the issues involved. I wish there was a magic wand or a global undo button, but rebuilding communities takes time. Don't shoot the messenger just because you disagree with the message. Just my opinion.

I agree with EREBUS, and for Junko I know how you felt to you fellow japanese aspecially in the disaster zone. But to redeveloped a proper infrastructure in the disaster zone take long time and with the scale of disaster because it involve many issue to consider but I can`t accept if Japan Gov can`t ready the basic and important thing. All in all not to expect fast or blink of the eye recovery. Thanks.

I actually look forward to Junko's articles and enjoy her style of reporting. It gives me a valuable insight into the technical supply chain issues that are not reported in the nightly news. Junko, keep up the good work!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
