Earlier today I had the opportunity to meet Lionel Lim, the new president of Sun Japan. I was impressed. His rhetoric was friendly, direct and honest, and he sounded like a guy looking to inspire people to get more innovative and take the opportunities out there. There is huge potential for Sun to gain more share of multiple markets in Japan. Also, as Sun grows in Japan by engaging more partners and customers, we can simultaneously engage more developers and users with more innovative community development operations. We are not doing nearly enough developer outreach in Japan, and I hope that changes because community development is quite literally market development. In fact, there is no distinction whatsoever, and I'd argue this point with just about anyone. So, I'm looking forward to this new leadership. Should be fun. Sun Japan press release in Japanese.
