Joel Breckinridge has lived in Japan for 20 years and has worked for several Japanese printing companies, including a stint as product manager for Heidelberg Japan. He now works in Tokyo as a consultant and writer. After writing about Japanese fonts problems for over 8 years, he figures the release of SING will finally relieve him of that duty.
