Yes, yes – I know what you’re thinking.
I can hear the usual barrage of comments coming already, “Oh Kelvin – you already have the *other* blog – you know, the Yandao.com one which you shamelessly spread via Word of Mouth [media] (but hey, since when was WoM a media type?) and which your alma mater has a Love-Hate relationship of!”.. or maybe something like, uh, “Did you need to REALLY buy kelvin.sg to setup your blog? What will happen to the rest of the Kelvin’s in Singapore, hurrrr? – but I’m also named Kelvin, leh!”.
Too bad, then. I grabbed it first – you other Kelvin‘s left it out there too long – (but I’ll gladly grant free subdomain redirects, unconditionally – if you just ask politely).
No, really. Let’s go through why I actually have this blog/site/portfolio/thingy up.
I’ve long wanted to have a more “proper” space for my work – and I used to think that my work belonged in Yandao.com. So, yes, I started posting really amazing stuff about work, chim-chim (local, unofficial and definitely unapproved slang for, uh, “advanced“) technologies and all that stuff – and.. well, to a largely non-technical audience, it didn’t really make any sense at all.
I want my geeky peers to have really something to chew about, and well, I also see the need to segregate work from play (even though, Full Disclosure: I love playing *during* work) to be more.. on-the-ball, if that’s actually the correct word to use.
That said, okay – here comes…. kelvin.sg – the more serious side of Kelvin Leong, who can undoubtedly be found on Facebook as, http://www.facebook.com/kelvin.leong – and whom can be reached at… kelvin [at] kelvin.sg (STOP saying “duh”, I know you want to say that desperately – but hold that thought, will ya?). And no, there isn’t exactly MSN (oh sorry Microsoft, it’s now called Windows Live Messenger) on that account…
