So . . . tonight my students and I had the very good fortune of having dinner with Mr. Norio Murakami, the former president of Google Japan. We had a great time and he’s an amazing man. (I was introduced by one of my students.) We talked about privacy, AI (no matter what Elon says), the Internet of things and Japanese mobile culture. Mr. Murakami also happens to know some very famous people such as Jack Dorsey (who he recently advised on how to get Square to take off), Eric Schmidt and Cheryl Sandberg. He is filled with energy and has a tremendous sense of humor. It was truly an honor to meet him and it would be great to work with him.
