My self-summary
Finally, I'm back in Sunnyvale, CA and 100% focusing on my new startup. Relocating to Big Apple is not decided yet. At least I enjoy the Californian sun!!

Life split in Tokyo, Sunnyvale, and Seoul but left my heart always belongs to sunny crispy California.

BS and MS educated from Big Ten schools (Buckeyes and Wildcats, Yeah!) to become a professional computer geek. Yes, I speak in binary!! (Darn! how come there's only C++ in language selection!!)

Currently staying in Tokyo for few startup projects. As soon as I'm done here, I'm going back to the Big Apple!!!!

I'm a dreamer with intense persistence to make my dreams come true, or I could be a geeky nerdy man with narrow tunnel vision... Who knows?

At 10, I had my own Apple II (yes I'm old enough) spending whole year struggling with hacking which led to wrecking one of the most expensive household appliances at that time.

At 12, while other friends were running around and chasing baseball, I made love to S.A.M (Software Automatic Mouth), a distant ancestor of Siri, on my Apple II. Ahh! that Autumn, I tenaciously programed BASIC to make SAM speak erotica in Korean!! How cool was that! (snort)

In the stormy period of my adolescence, I was lured by the beauty of music and literature. Like the Starbuck's Siren lurks around every corner of known cities, the irresistible quality captured me into a rabbit hole with full of wonders.

From Jr. High until the beginning of the college, my entertainment broadened to literature, music and others like any other teenaged boys might like in everywhere in the world: I read chockfull amount of the Modern (late 1800's to early 1900's) Japanese & Russian literatures, I also enjoyed the Modernism music like Saint-Saëns, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, and Debussy (remember "Clair De Lune" from Twilight? The Modern classical music works marvelously to any teenagers, I guess.. in case you don't remember

At MOMA, 18, I lost my virginity to Kirchner's "Street, Dresden." The vivid color was so overwhelming, and engulfed me. Since then, my addiction to the Modernism(and Expressionism) grow deeper. That led huge chain reactions. Then "Surrealism" became the keyword of my life.

At college, I rejoiced the exoteric beauty of computers particularly the UNIX (including NeXTStep which I worshiped). My love affair began at a computer lab in my engineering school. It was love at first sight! I had work extra to get the admin role in that lab. Yes, it was a priesthood back than. Speaking the holy languages (like Shell Scripts and C/C++) and limit harddisk quota to the users. We should have worn the hooded cloaks at that lab.. :)

Thanks to that religious zeal, I started to work at a local state owned Internet service provider(ISP) and had enormous opportunities meet and care computers no ordinary mundane people can approach. I was listening to Divinyls's "I Touch Myself" when I was "burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night.." :)

Did I say "Surrealism?" Since 22, I set my life's goal to make the surreal world of my own. Heavily influenced by Zhuang-zi(莊子)'s "Butterfly Dream(胡蝶之夢)," or Stephenson's "Snow Crash."

Everyday I move bit by bit to make that dream come true. Of course I do other affairs to be profitable to move forward. As for the mundane mechanical foundation, I work on to create technology called "Augmented Reality," or I prefer to label it as "Mixed Reality."

May be I'm in quest for a muse who inspires me from the foundation to metaphysical level. A connector who would feed me cosmic wonders eternally. ^^

Away from the desk, I'm still interested in esoteric and no money making value subjects like Sanskrit, Buddhist Scriptures, Classic Chinese Writings and Confucian Scriptures (before Chin Dynasty). Other interests: Evolutionary Psychology, Complexity Theories, and other stuffs that takes slow and arduous learning process.

Perhaps more about me:
What I’m doing with my life
1. Long Work Hour in multiple cities
2. Enjoy "out of desk" activities
- Working on 10 year grandiose study plan on "Neo-Confucian" texts: "Annotated Four Books(四書集註" by Zhu-xi(朱憙) (Every Sunday morning for the past 7 years)
I’m really good at
Creating business plans and actually doing'em.
Learning new & esoteric things like Sanskrit.
Saving energy and water from getting wasted
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let me see... as a fanatic book collector, I like, literally, "all kind of books" I use "darts" to select books in bookstores. :)

Pablo Neruda is the top of list when it comes to books and authors. Many love poems are heartbreaking but I love every bit of his poems and sonnets.

After finishing "Hunger Games" trilogy, I jumped on the epic Zombie novel, "World War Z." Hooah! I used read lots of horror books, but this is the 1st time I get scared by reading a novel.
I just learned that Brad Pitt is making the film version of WWZ now for the early 2013. CAN'T WAIT!!!

I've always like to read (& re-read) pre-Soviet Rssian novels by the great authors like Tolstoy, Gogol, Dostoyevsky, Trugenev, and, of course, the great Pushikin. Also I virtually worship post war author Nabokov. One day I'd love to walk the Nevsky road in St. Petersburg for experiencing what Gogol described in his novels like "Over coat" and "The Nose."

Other authors I like;
Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Richard Brautigan and other Beat writers. Also, Umberto Eco, Italo Calvino, Georges Bataille, Susan Sontag, Roland Barthes, André Breton, Franz Kafka, Jorge Luis Borges, Neil Gaiman, Balzac, Dumas, Camus, Sienkiewicz, Marquis de Sade, Ezra Pound, Jonathan Swift, Chinua Achebe, Haruki Murakami, Yasunari Kawabata, Viktor Frankl, Ibsen, Marguerite Duras, Guy De Maupassant, Balzac, Katherine Mansfield, Micheal Crichton, Kafka, William Gibson, Walter Benjamin, Natsume Soseki, Nora Ephron (So sad she's gone!) and much more!

I enjoys children's books written by Selma Lagerlöf (Writer/Nobel laureate of " The Wonderful Adventures of Nils-I was so into the story when I was youg!" , Tove Jansson (Writer of "Moomin" Serise) and Astrid Lindgren (of Pippi). One day, I'll visit Jasson's last seashore cottage in Klovharu island.

Also, love gothic writers like Ambrose Bierce, Edward Gorey, Stephen King, Poe, Shirley Jackson, Neil Gaiman ("Coraline" and its button eyes story is fantastic!!), Suzuki Koji (Japanese horror "Ring" fame) and Tim Button

A beautiful Polish poet and a Nobel Laureate "Wisława Szymborska" is the coolest poet on my female poets list. MUST READ!
