Former #IBMJapan President Otoshi allegedly “upskirted”.

A few people pointed this one out to me, where the former head of IBM Japan is said to have taken video or pictures of young women from an indiscreet camera angle.

It’s strange. If true, what was going on? First Clint Eastwood, now this story. As we are still in the middle of discovery process, I’m actually more interested in knowing who selected Mr. Otoshi to run IBM Japan, and how he was chosen for the other leadership positions. (Apparently now, he has resigned from his last one.) If it was consistent with everything I am finding independently, there were parties in New York involved in all of it.

It also makes me wonder how sincere the Otoshi-lead “Multiculture Initiative” on race and gender issues was in 2008 . . .
