Japanese Archery

I often drop by Jeffrey Friedl’s blog. He’s a computer scientist living in Japan, but in addition to this, he’s a keen, and talented, photographer, and his blog usually has stunning images of Japan and Japanese society.

He recently attended a Japanese Archery contest for the first time, and has written a number of blog posts about the experience. Do go and take a look; I suggest you start with this one, followed by this and this. There are others in the series as well.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Friedl’s book Mastering Regular Expressions is a classic, I have a well-thumbed copy of this book in my office. For non-computer-specialist readers, regular expressions or regexes as they are known to coders, are a key part of many programming languages and text-manipulation tools (including Perl, the language I use most, and Vim, the text editor I use most). Regexes can look like feline typing to the uninitiated, but are a very compact and powerful way to pick apart strings of text. I use regexes on a daily basis, and have learned many useful techniques from Friedl’s book.
