Asia の調査 4/5〜4/11：Open Gov や E-Gov のトピック数をチャートで！
アジアへの露出を、Gov／Open Gov／Smart City というキーワードで・・・
Cloud News Asia には Government というカテゴリがあり、Telecom および Mobile とトピック数を競っているわけですが、その内訳というと、Censorship／Court／Defence／E-Gov／NSA／Open Gov／Patent／Regulation／Smart City／Surveillance という具合に、いろいろなものが、ごった煮になっています。 そして、NSA や Patent が、ここにあるのも不自然に思えるのですが、その辺りは、言語の課題として、整理していきたいと思っています。
そして、今週ですが、これらの中から、比較的ポジティブと思える 3つのカテゴリを選んで、その合計をチャートにしてみました。具体的に言うと、これまでの約一年の間の、E-Gov／Open Gov／Smart City に関連するトピックを、各国ごとに合計したものなのですが、その大半が Open Gov に関連していました。 それと比べると、E-Gov および Smart City は少数です。 また、China 5 という数字ですが、Huawei などが Smart City のソリューションを輸出する、といった感じのトピックが大半でした。 そして、日本の 4本は、以下のとおりでした。
以下は、今週の Top-10 です・・・

WeChat, China’s most popular chat app, announced today it has begun testing out banner ads and promoted app installs on its “article view” pages. WeChat tends to attract the foreign tech industry’s attention for its growing number of services, like taxi booking and mobile payments. But it’s also a popular destination for news reading. Publishers will often push out content daily through their official accounts, using WeChat’s own publishing platform or a third-party one.
Unless this is your first day on the internet, you’re probably aware that Japan is home to some of the most bizarre vending machines on the planet. Canned bread, “used” panties, and pretty much anything in between are just a few coins away. While there’s no lack of WTF in the world of Japanese vending machines, some of the quirky stuff is far from practical. NTT Communications, a division of Japanese telecommunications conglomerate NTT, may have introduced one of the most practical vending machines since the original cold drink dispenser: one that spits out prepaid SIM cards.

A year after China began tightening regulations around Bitcoin, the virtual currency is still thriving in the country, albeit on the fringes, according to its largest exchange. Bitcoin prices may have declined, but Chinese buyers are still trading the currency in high volumes with the help of BTC China, an exchange that witnessed the boom days back in 2013, only to see the bust following the Chinese government’s announcement, in December of that year, that banks would be banned from trading in bitcoin.

他の国々と比べて、日本が少ないなぁと思いますし、もっとアピールできるものが有るはずなのにと感じます。 もちろん、こうしたデータの取り方に、正当性を主張するものではありませんし、それぞれの国々の実態と乖離しているところが多々あると推測しています。 ただ、ひとつだけ言えるのは、どれだけアジアのメディアに、英語でアピールできているのかという切り口が、ここには有るという点です。
