Tencent might develop a VR version of WeChat
Strap on a VR headset and hang out with your friends’ virtual avatars in a virtual space -- that’s the idea of a VR social network. Now Tencent could be making its own version of that.

“It’s time to seriously consider developing a VR version of WeChat”, Tencent CEO Pony Ma said today at the Wuzhen World Internet Conference.

Why now? Ma cited greater internet speed thanks to 5G, and more VR headsets that’ll possibly be released next year. Download speeds at China Telecom’s 5G test site at the conference reached 17GB per second, Ma said, quoting China Telecom’s chairman.

Why is Japan rearming?
Japan is to acquire its first aircraft carrier since the Second World War, as it looks to ramp up its rearmament programme to counter the growing maritime threat posed by China in the Pacific Ocean.,Previous Japanese governments have specifically ruled out acquiring aircraft carriers, adhering to the postwar consensus that the vessels’ capabilities could be interpreted as offensive and therefore in violation of its “pacifist” constitution.,“Pacifism has been a sacred tenet of Japan’s national identity since the end of World War II” says Motoko Rich in the New York Times, “but there are signs that the public’s devotion to pacifism and its attitude toward the Japanese military, known as the Self-Defense Forces, have begun to change in part at the urging of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.”,in 2015, Abe pushed through security laws that permit Japan’s troops to participate in overseas combat missions, and the Japanese government has also proposed military spending increases for seven years running.,Though there is general consensus Japan’s pacifist constitution allows offensive action under certain limited circumstances, Bloomberg’s editorial board has written that “the prime minister needs to be honest about his long-running push to revise Japan’s constitution, including its clause renouncing war”.

> I also heard one investor mention how Tumblr struggled with technical debt related to their feed

Not sure I'd agree with that, but I suppose it depends on the context and timing of the statement.

Tumblr's solution for reverse-chrono activity feed is, at its core, <1000 lines of PHP and a few extremely heavily optimized sharded MySQL tables. It is creaky and old, but its relatively small code footprint means it isn't terrible on the tech debt scale.

Tumblr's feed is computed entirely at rea...

In rural towns like Shikoku’s Ikata, the Japanese nuclear industry is making a quiet comeback
In the mostly residential neighborhood around her restaurant, hotel rooms and local inns were also packed with workers preparing to reopen Shikoku Electric Power’s Ikata nuclear plant, nestled on the Shikoku coast at the base of the verdant Sadamisaki Peninsula.,Nearly eight years after an earthquake and tsunami triggered nuclear meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.’s Fukushima No. 1 plant, the battered industry is making a quiet and somewhat unexpected return.,Yoshiaki Yamanouchi, 76, began his career in nuclear litigation in 1973 when he represented Shikoku Electric in a landmark suit brought by Ikata residents seeking to stop the plant from opening.,Every month a nuclear reactor sits inoperative, the utility spends ¥3.5 billion for additional fuel at its conventional power plants.,But Ikata is projected to shrink to 5,000 residents over the next 20 years, and Takakado recently said he found it hard to imagine an industry that could replace nuclear power.
