I am just wondering. Is Nishi aware that there is a pretty big community/scene still using the HW he once designed.
And if he would know about it, would he sometimes be reading this forum?

If someone would tell him about it would he join this forum? What would he be thinking.

I would smile in great pride even though I know my product didn't become the intented world standard. I would certainly be a part of this forum if I was the developer of MSX.

So what do you guys think.

Well, he did visit the MSX fair in Tilburg in 2001...

And more recently (though meanwhile also a couple of years ago) he was involved in the one chip MSX project and in the Japanese "MSX Player" emulator.

OCM was released in 2006. So he has at least been involved with it until 2006.

Hmm... This talk about Nishi has got me thinking.

Since it is the 30th Anniversary of MSX, why not have us band together to show our appreciation, a fan made digital E-Card or section on the MRC Website or something to that effect that could be made as a special thanks project of sorts that has at least the MSX logo and signatures / comments and location in the world from MSX enthusiasts across the globe and send it his way by email, (or to the school address if it's a physical item being sent).

My wife is Japanese and her family lives in Japan, so if there wasn't an easier method to send a physical item, I could probably set something up with her family and arrange it so that it is mailed to him at the school perhaps.

What do you all think about something like this? It'd be nice to show appreciation back in such a way that he could still see that MSX is still being appreciated to this day.

I like the idea and certainly can contribute my signature Smile or perhaps something more substantial.

An excellent idea, not sure what I can do to support it, but let me know if you need anything specific.
