With the combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots
We are promoting a new era of company management.
We hope to share part of this process with you in this corner.

The New Year's Day service has been released on New Year's Day for 12 years without getting tired of it.
The original calendar has been distributed at the end of the year for the past seven years.
Thankfully, "I'm a fan, looking forward to it!" and this year we issued a press release so that they can use it nationwide.
I can't imagine what this will look like in the future.
However, not a few people visit our site, and we will continue to rely on their support.
We hope to be a company that, forever and ever, can do something fun and exciting as soon as we think of it.
We look forward to working with you again this year.

When I used to interview people, I often heard them say, "I had an image that IT companies were difficult to work for, but I took the plunge and applied.
It may be true.
People who join us from different industries say they don't understand IT terminology at first.
However, time has passed, and those who said it would be difficult have been with the company for 5 or 10 years, happily working while snacking on snacks.
In any industry, in any job, you don't know what you are doing at first, and then you get used to it.
Now, even though there is a 50-year age gap from a 19-year-old intern to a 69-year-old part-timer, they work together smoothly, and even the generation gap is nothing to sneeze at.

Since December 16 was the day the company was registered, a full 13 years have passed.
Since it is the end of the year cleaning, I am looking back a bit, throwing away a lot of past e-mails and data as usual.
It had only been a few years, but the structure of the company, the way it operated its services, and the way it made things fun and exciting were completely different.
My sense was that the land was gently connected to the past, but in reality it was like a steep peak with layers of sheer cliffs, and I wondered how we had managed to climb it.
At the same time, I can only express my gratitude once again to all those who kindly watched over us from far and near, and called out to us strongly.
I am looking forward to building up to another important day.

If a project deadline is approaching and resources are limited, the first priority would be to meet it on time.
However, it is precisely when I am in such a tight corner that I would like to have the courage to try if a little effort can open up a much brighter future.
Such a secret was hidden in the fact that the Voyager spacecraft, launched 45 years ago, is still sending radio waves from more than 20 billion kilometers away (100 AU: 1 AU is the distance between the sun and the earth).

(Nikkei Science January 2023)
About 60 years ago, the four giant planets of our solar system were slowly aligning their orbits, and NASA built two spacecraft to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Voyager 1 and 2, identical in every detail, were launched one after the other in less than half a month in the summer of 1977.
The first four years were positioned as the primary mission," said Suzanne Dodd, who returned as project manager in 2010 after 20 years away from the Voyager team. But if there was an option to add something to the four-year mission that was not needed but would cost 10% more, the engineering team chose it. And they didn't specifically report it to the top."
They didn't have microprocessors in them. It didn't exist." The engineers who designed Voyager could not rely on a vast computer program to help drive the spacecraft. The mission could have lasted this long because it was built almost entirely into the hardware," he said. Today's engineers wouldn't know how to do that. It's doubtful that anyone today could build a spacecraft as simple as this one."
We must use all the technology we can think of at the present time to meet the challenges that lie ahead, and we must think about the margins and build them up a little further in advance.
We want immediate results, we want to find the right answer as quickly as possible, and we want to make things as easy as possible, but we need to remember that there is an opposite approach.
The journey will continue even after the two spacecraft have completely stopped observing. Voyager 1 will pass its neighbor, Proxima Centauri, in 16,700 years, and will be followed by Voyager 2 3,600 years after that. And after that, the two machines will continue orbiting the galaxy for millions of years.

Some time ago, the hypothesis of Skill-Biased Technological Progress (or Skill-Biased Technological Change: SBTC) was used to explain the disparity problem.
The idea was that the acquisition of new skills not previously available would create a rise in income, which later became known as STEM education, and programming education began in schools and was learned as reskilling in the workforce.
For reference, STEAM education (an extension of STEM) from the wiki
STEAM education is a method of education that integrates STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) with Arts (Liberal Arts). STEM education is an educational approach that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics with Arts.
STEAM education develops the mathematical and scientific foundations of student children while teaching them to think critically (critical thinking) and apply technology and engineering to address problems that exist in the real world through imaginative and creative approaches.
It is tied to the argument that wage growth is lower in Japan than in other developed countries, but it is worth thinking a little bit about whether a reskilling education in the DX era really improves the earnings of companies and raises the income of individuals.
In the very long run, it could be about income redistribution, which came about after the industrial revolution of the 20th century, or it could be about how you want to spend your life.

The wind blew and scattered the leaves of maple trees, and it became much colder.
One month from now, today is beyond Christmas and close to New Year's, so I honestly feel like this is for real.
I was making New Year's decorations next to the tree that I was diligently decorating, and I was in a very busy end-of-year mode.
Looking back at the resolutions I made at the beginning of this year, I see half of what I see and half of what I don't see, like the moon among the clouds.
We know we can't really make it in time, but we are trying to do it in a hurry and are dashing as fast as we can in a wrinkled master's race.

Spend your money and time on things you believe will grow."
is an easy-to-understand expression and is a criterion for making an investment decision.
In the case of a company, it is easy to answer the questions: Does a stylish interior design lead to growth, does launching a new service lead to growth, does increasing the number of workers lead to growth, does prominent advertising lead to growth, does providing more customer support lead to growth, does providing ample training lead to growth? Does more customer support lead to growth?
The same is true for individuals: can you grow by dressing up, starting something new, working more hours, being socially appealing, taking care of your health and relationships, or studying every day?
As you make more and more judgments in this way, you begin to talk about one layer higher: "What is growth that I can believe in?" and "For whom is this growth really for?
Since only we know, we have no choice but to polish the sparkles we can believe in while answering the questions we are asked.

Mogic has always had a culture of digging deep into themes within the company, and this culture has its origins in a conversation between two board members.
We have been talking three times a week for more than a decade, for a total of at least three hours, and it always starts with material that is far removed from the company or business.
I was kicked by martial artist Andy Hug when I was younger."
In the majors, they've recently been using a machine called iPitch to recreate the pitcher's ball.
There's a phenomenon where if my kids are on their phones, they stop taking care of their dogs."
Or, "The Roman army, with their heavy cavalry equipment, is pretty amazing."
It's completely unrelated, but I find that it leads to insights that are relevant to business and management.
If you think about it, management is about extracting the essence from many different events, so perhaps this is training for that.
