This site is a smorgasbord of content from various online presences that I have maintained since 1996. You will find silly articles that I posted as a college (university) freshman, tutorials on computer networking that I posted early in my career, my thoughts on life, and more recently a journal of my travels with my dear JC.
I was born in Hong Kong in the late 70s. My family lived in Australia in the early 80s, we moved back to Hong Kong in the late 80s, and we finally settled in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 90s. My most formative years were in the Bay Area. I was educated in the Bay Area, studying economics at the University of California, and later computer science at the City College of San Francisco. But, I also have many memories of growing up in Hong Kong, and emigrating to and adjusting to life in the United States. It has been an ongoing adventure.
Add to the above some attention deficit and social anxiety disorder (admittedly self-diagnosed) and things get even more interesting. I have noticed that I tend to notice things that people around me do not. I know I have trouble with social interaction. I have been told that I am smart, but lazy. An employer once told me that I have flashes of brilliance followed by periods of indifference.
I am still trying to figure out who I really am. Naturally, I know myself a lot better today than I did back in 1996. This website, with its progression of musings from past to present, is a testament to that. I have kept an online presence for nearly half my life. Hopefully, some of what I have authored on this site will be left behind when that life is over.
Thank you for visiting.
