GENERAL COVER LETTER FOR ALL POSITIONS
15 October 2010
I am an MIT grad in artificial intelligence programming, with 2 masters (web communities, andChinese/Japanese business) and 1 Ph.d. Degree (in total quality methods applied to improve research processes) from the University of Michigan, whose first academic job was Lecturer in Quality Management& Statistics at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business (since renamed the Booth School).My Japanese wife was Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago (social work, gerontology) while Itaught there, but she became seriously ill, and after 5 years of teaching we suddenly had to return to Japanfor her health, where, we found professor jobs at the same new School of Policy Studies. Later Japan's best private university (Keio) hired me to teach creativity, innovation, and design in their new Grad School of System Design and Management. My wife's health has improved and my own isolation in Japan no longer serves my writing purposes, so I seek work as faculty in your institution.
Elemental concepts as targets:
I can work in any of six or so academic departments
because
I haveaddressed such elemental and foundational concepts---
excellence, creativity, design, educatedness, culture powers, intellectual tools, quality, performance, interface, events, self, complexity, evolution
.
East Asian &Western ideas combined:
I have profoundly studied East Asian practices and the theories latent in them, aswell as US and European thought innovations (Kintsch's macrostructures for example). My combinations of  profound East Asian and Western ways of thought are unique in the world.
New intellectual toolsinvented:
In addition, I have invented intellectual tools, based on years of cognitive linguistics and artificialintelligence studies of mind.
Correcting neuroses/biases of US norms of doing research:
My intellectualtools are precisely aimed at neurotic omissions and biases in current US-dominated research practices(publish-or-perish never was the basis of US post-war research supremacy, scholars forget).
Researchresults that apply to many academic fields at once:
All the above apply to several academic departments: business, education, computers, design/arts, media/interfaces, international/area-studies.
Extremelypowerful single research paradigms from Asia:
I have enhanced usual top-university research tools withadditions from artificial intelligence protocols of mind, total quality process modeling, and certain extremelyelemental theories from outside US research channels: Taguchi's optimize ideal energy flow through adesign/organization/mind; Kano's evolution from bureau to process to event doing of work; Arendt's socialrevolution paradigm of liberty, freedom, historic dream, conserving novelty; and others.
Cross-nationcross-discipline cross-profession:
I have both worked across more boundaries than most scholars and practitioners and studied people who do the same, and built tools for operating across such bounds. Thisfosters my being able to work in several fields.
I have studied professions themselves and total qualityde-professionalizing of bodies of knowledge:
How professions operate and how they distort anddysfunction both were in my scope of study, so my own research takes a rather research-founded critique of US current norms of research work.
Fractal multi-granular scope of research:
The scope of my researchaims, and the multi-scale granularity at which I read, model, collect data, and analyze are a continual puzzle,irritant, and battle with monolithic, mistaken, current traditions of American journal research and their editors (frankly speaking). Also, as sensitive readers will have already guessed, I have gotten more than a bit tired of theft by journal editors of my article contents while they delay my own publishing.
Futuredirections in my research:
If, like me, you gratefully appreciate what science liberated us all from, thentaking good care of science means extending it, in our time, to wipe out evils and greeds, compromises andnorms that endanger us all but enrich cliques and elites, and that distort (infect) contemporary science practice and publishing. I summarize:●►extremely elemental and foundational concepts addressed in my research●►profound East Asian ideas combined with profound Western ones●►new intellectual tools that I invent used to enable research aims●►new targets and aims: research that fixes certain neuroses/biases in US journalemphasis●►process methods from artificial intelligence protocols and total quality methods●►study of profound East Asia theories of fundaments of thought and life●►cross-nation cross-field cross-profession work and research of such work ●►study of professions and Japanese de-professionalizing bodies of knowledge viatotal quality methods●►fractal multi-granular scope of my research as a result of all the above●►research and teaching in any of six or so fields as a result of all the above●►categorical models of great scope and thoroughness using new intellectual toolsas a result of the above.

Result
:
research of dramatic scope that is somewhat hard to assess
WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO REALIZE ABOUT ME:
1)
Several of the world's best colleges, businesses, and persons have selected me for hireand awards: Xerox PARC, Univ. of Chicago, Keio University, MIT, Santa Fe Institute; all thepeople below knew me personally and chose me or gave me an award or promotion:Harry Roberts, co-Founder, University of Chicago Grad School of BusinessTony Affuso, CEO, Siemens PLM, global CAD software leaderBruce MacDonald, Superintendent of English, Weston Public SchoolsRoss Perot, Founder and CEO of EDS (when I was there)Alvin Toffler, author and Participatory Town Meeting movement founderAl Madansky, co-Founder, University of Chicago, Grad School of Business, and ASAKonotsuke Matsushita, Founder of what is today called PanasonicThomas Jefferson Coolidge, III; CEO Bay Back Orient Enterprises, Korean investorPaul Allaire and David Kearns, CEOs of XeroxJohn Seely Brown, Chief of Xerox PARC and Richard Bruce, Liveboard co-founderLarry Huston, VP of Research at Procter & Gamble, research outsourcer with AmabileHis Holiness the Dalai Lama, Daisetzu Suzuki, Huston Smith, Nathan Sivin at MITRobert Pinsky, Lillian Hellman, Ray Bradbury, W. H. Auden---at Wellesley & MITJohn Holland, Stuart Kauffman, Bill Cowan, founding faculty at Santa Fe InstituteObata, CEO of Sekisui Chemical; Ryotaro Nomura, founder & CEO Taiyo KogyoMorton Sosland, CEO various agriculture companies and trade associationsJoseph Wesley Mathews, Founder of ICA and EI NGOsHannah Arendt, Professor, the New School, Manhattan, New York Vice Chairman Laco, of Procter & Gamble Company, ordered my video distributedAl Levin, CEO Royal Bank of Canada, micro-banking experiment in IndonesiaNakasone, former Prime Minister of JapanJimmy Carter, former President of the United StatesNewt Gingrich, former Speaker of the US House of Representatives
2)
Though I always lack the credentials to do so, I have a sense for the over-emphases andneuroses of all around me and like the risk of aiming my small all at tipping points, whereslight inputs may have huge outcomes---this has evolved into my research having an“AWARE” quality (Japanese term)---aiming to get at the “ah-ness” of things
3)
The faculty of the University of Chicago called my book 
Global Quality
a work of genius, the faculty of Purdue University made it one of the best 21 books on quality
4)
 
I have had 16 mini-careers:a) science, programming (LISP, APL, Fortran I), and music career in Virginiab) artificial intelligence software/technology career at MITc) creative writing career at Wellesleyd) fund raising career in USA visiting richest 2000 Americans for NGOe) mass worshop event design and set up in Japan, Korea, Taiwan for NGOf) total quality study & artificial intelligence instruction at Matsushita and Sekisui in Japang) MA in Chinese/Japanese business, MA in web communities, PhD in total qualityimprovements in research at University of Michiganh) complexity theory and practice at initial workshops of the Santa Fe Institutei) interface, event, quality consults for major corporations: P&G, General Dynamics j) total quality software circles set up and sold for 3 US corporations: EDS, Coopers &Lybrand, and Xeroxk) three venture businesses launched in Silicon Valley for Xerox PARC: Qsoft,Liveboard, and Documentuml) helped Sekisui in Japan win Deming Prize and Xerox win Baldrige Award in USAm) published two McGraw Hill books of my U of Michigan homework n) set up software circles at Thompson Electric Paris and N. V. Philips Eindhoven
 
o) taught at 5 colleges: University of Chicago, Kansai Gaidai, Kwansei Gakuin, TempleUniversity, and KEIO Universityp) ePublished 14 books on results of my Excellence Science Research Project of theUniversity of Chicago
5)
 
The NGO I worked for immediately after MIT, was extreme in its intellectuality and scope of work---envisioning a multi-century disciplined process that might revive Western Civilizationby reworking Japanese community richness and their disciplines into Western contexts; thishas inspired the comprehensive scope and choice of elemental foundational ideas in myresearch.
6)
I wrote up my University of Michigan homework as a book Global Quality and the Universityof Chicago faculty read it pre-publication and found me and offered me work teaching at theirGraduate School of Business where I taught 5 years
7)
I have done research most of my life but published half of it as book chapters (I wish to delay journal publishing till entire well-formed programs have been tested privately, you know, sortof Kahneman and Tversky style):at MIT cognitive linguistics and text processing research,at Weston Public Schools metaphoric thought research,at ICA and EI NGOs event and workshop protocol design research,at Matsushita Electric and Sekisui in Japan total quality relation to high softwaretechnology research,at Santa Fe Institute non-linear modeling of policy processes,at University of Michigan grad school monastic management and quality solvingprocesses research;at EDS and GM technology delivery, event design, and CAD/CAM benchmarkingresearch;at Coopers & Lybrand event management and software circles research;at Xerox total quality software construction, Taguchi structuring of managementsystems research;at Silicon Valley venture launch parasite dynamics research;at University of Chicago Excellence Science Research,at Kwansei Gakuin design protocols expressed as creativity models research;at KEIO university interface science, innovation models, design event protocols, cultureof devices and technologies and practices research.
8)
I have designed my career: global NGO work (with research), graduate study (with research),corporation work (with research), leading to formal academic research now.
9)
Over the years, written feedback, in courses, consults, and conferences, indicates that I amconsistently a life-changing public speaker and teacher---my advisees have ALL entered worldtop 25 universities, 2 of my students are CEOs of sizable firms at age 34, and dozens are “bestin Asia” employees of global top 50 corporations.
10)
I am just now entering my most productive research era---seeking dozens of doctoral studentsto guide in the research topics listed in my academic resume first section below
11)
Finally, I have values and I also apply them:a) I paid the world back, so to speak, for the richness of my MIT-Wellesley education byworking without pay for 6 years in NGOs after graduationb) I violated some powers that be in my NGO and in our target village, to empowervillage women with portable mowers, with the result that total village incomequadrupled permanentlyc) I took a hit on my career (interruption) of several years to cure my wife of a painfuldisease (with hard thinking and experiments by us both)---I will always be proud of ourmutual effort and every happy day she now, cured, hasd) My Femininity of Productivity research combines with the 33 cases in my book SuperSelling covering improvements in work systems done via feminizing them: tomake the point that doing good, in historic terms, also is productive in contemporaryterms.DIMENSIONS IN THAT BACKGROUND:
How to think about who I am and what I can contribute toyour faculty, students, programs? I find the following images are appreciated:
I combine:an
NGO
career, a
For Profit
career, a
High Technology
Career, an
Academic
career
