Vince Chan

Iím a 27 year old Canadian living in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The GTA has many wonderful bloggers that you should really check out! I am currently single and living at the edge of the suburban part of the city in Scarborough.

I was originally born in Singapore and grew up there until my family immigrated to Canada in the spring of 1990. Growing up with a Chinese heritage in the east and west has allowed me to bear different perspectives on a variety of subjects. Iíve also enjoyed being involved in creative projects am an a self-admitted media junkie. Growing up in a foreign land, it always felt like movies, music, television, the internet were my extended family.

I went to the University of Waterloo and majored in Computer Science with elective courses on electrical engineering. Never one to back down from challenge, I actually did better as the senior years rolled along. For anyone who knows about the UW curriculum, they would consider my senior-year courses of Real-Time Operating Systems, Computer Graphics, Compiler Construction, and Distributed Systems to be a tough challenge. Yet, it turned out to be my best year for grades and I graduated with honors.

Academically I found computers and technology to be stimulating but what I enjoyed more is self-discovery, self-improvement, dicussions and debates. I often tell my friends that if I were able to do it all over again, I probably would have majored in philosophy; at least I can think deep thoughts about unemployment!

Iíve worked several jobs as an intern in the programming industry and also a full-time position after I graduated. Disillusioned with the thought of being a programmer for the long-term. I bravely left the industry behind and have since found a welcoming calling in the financial industry.

I still enjoy technology and media very much, as a hobby. Iíve been blogging through several sites since August 2004. The Web 2.0 revolution is certainly captivating my interest at the moment. Blogging has been a wonderful self-evolution as I discover how to express my inner thoughts.

Hopefully, this will get you started with some information about me! Iím sure many people will draw their own conclusions based on my writing and other interaction with me.
