One mad project was started a week ago.

One mad project was started a week ago.

The project involves translating a Japanese book into English within a week. The members of the project are volunteers and have worked for free.

It usually takes six months to a year to translate a Japanese book into English. Most people have regarded this project as madness. But they managed to finished this project in 5 days as of yesterday.

I watched a example of “the wisdom of crowds”. I am amazed at their madness now…

The translated book is “Watching shogi (Japanese chess) from Silicon Valley”, written by Mochio Umeda. The English version will be published soon.
