Nobuto is one of the greatest Ubuntu evangelist in Japanese community. In particular, he organize a regular event "Ubuntu Hour in Tachikawa" for the purpose of creating opportunity to face Japanese - a beginner and a advanced - users. I believe that he and his work play an important role in the growth of Ubuntu community. -- cosmos-door 2010-11-23 04:26:00
Nobuto's passion and sincerity have made him as good speechmaker. As LoCo members, he have much experience as a event-staff/booth staff/organizer. Of course -- until then, he contributes many LoCo events. For about twenty months, he contribute much to the success of our team. -- hito 2010-11-30 10:18:00
