    Abstract:
    Nine various essays from 1999-2000 in The Education Companion Newsletter based in New York City: 1) "Culture Crossed" [humor], 2) "More Culture Crossed"; 3) "Making Real Haiku Poetry"; 4) "The Woman Diver: Discovering East Asian Values in a Buddhist Folktale"; 5) "Conducting Academic Conferences Online"; 6) "Motivating Interfaces for the 2000s"; 7) "World Association for Online Education (WAOE) 2000 Update"; 8) "Child Research Net and K-12 Education in Japan"; and 9) "Japan's IT Educational Reforms and Asian Digital Divide Plans."
    Notes:
    The essays reflect the author's global involvements, international family, and research at the time, from an outer island of Japan known for the Pilgrimage of Shikoku. In item 4, for instance, the intensely symbolic and moving local lore of the female pearl diver is presented as a lesson in Asian values clarification. Did the woman sacrifice her life more for her husband, as stereotypes might lead one to assume, or for the future career of her son?
