keithyau’s Incredible 2015

In my past 30 years, I don’t mind getting hands dirty (**apply to my keyboard/software only). Not refuse but I will try to avoid touching hardware (Wood/electronics) ~

  1. the reason is i had a super dad do all stuff for me, from homework to toy to experiments to home furniture …
  2. I think 1 person do 1 good thing already too hard, if i’m good at software i should keep focus…

Although my world not small (no comparison here),  looks like i were keeping away from many good things  due to 1) and 2)

At end of Nov 2015, i made my first DIY IEKA standing desk & MacBook Dock. A good start to try getting my hands raw and training execution power, later on, i will develop more DIY tool ~
