Mogic considers

With a combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots
We are moving forward with a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of that process with you in this section.

How to match the rhythm

At the heart of a personal computer is an integrated circuit called a CPU, which performs various calculations.

In addition, there is memory for temporary storage, hard disks for long-term storage of large amounts of data, and external connection terminals, which work together in complex ways.

There is a secret to collaboration, and that is rhythm.

Since a large amount of processing is done simultaneously using electrical signals, if each part is out of alignment, it makes no sense at all.

Electronic circuits have "oscillators," or rhythm makers, that produce accurate and fast rhythms.

Many people have heard the word quartz, which in Japanese is quartz (quartz crystal) as it is, cut into thin pieces and vibrating when voltage is applied.

I sometimes use rhythms that I have created by applying them.


Rhythm is also a major factor in human movement, and I recently read in a paper that the hippocampus, the part of the brain related to memory, is in a 4 to 8 Hz rhythm.

Rhythm seems to be important for the brain, too, to link the parts that are divided by function, such as sight and hearing.

However, there seems to be a debate as to whether it is centrally managed like a personal computer or whether it is decentralized and aligned by taking advantage of functional localization.


Thinking about such rhythms, I wonder what the rhythm that makes a company function should be.

Mogic has never had a numerical goal or roadmap. Each person or team brings up an idea at their own time, gets feedback, and then, poof, they're together and gone.

Spring rooftop is closed.

The Mogic office has a rather spacious rooftop where we sometimes sunbathe, nap, roast coffee, or work on wood, but the best time to do so is at dusk.

Fuji rises faintly as the sun sets, and the lights of the Sky Tree and buildings are reflected in the background.

As it gets a little darker, you can just barely see the first magnitude stars, and right now you can see Aldebaran in Taurus, Vega in Lyra, Deneb in Cygnus, and then Mars and Saturn shimmering.

As the weather warms up after the first day of spring, the cedar pollen will arrive, so the rooftop will be closed soon.

Next would be a small bookshelf on the stairs to begin a select book section.

Throughout the year, we find small pleasures in every corner of the office and share them with everyone. Such Mogic-ness begins today.
