One suggestion

As we all know, this blog was set up several months ago for some academic information exchange. I understand that the majority of viewers do appreciate this blog. However, looks like this blog has been used only for announcing up-coming events of KLA and all, and there must be a better way to utilise this. So, for all KLAites, I do suggest that each one of us should publish a post that addresses some research topics of our thesis. This might hopefully activate this blog and lead us to a better direction. What do you think?

By Yoichi

P.S. Maybe, some of you might assume that publishing a post in this blog is a big deal. But, we don't see it that way. This blog is an online space where very casual academic communication is encouraged. We are all waiting for your post. KLAites, let's leade the way!
