Then, after that, I became a webmaster and got deep into Internet web development right when the Internet kicked off in the mid-90s. I stopped my talk in 2001 when my wife and I moved to the United States, where I later took leading technology jobs and delivered software products with my team. Summarizing the first 20 years of sweat and love for the technology machine into 15 minutes was tough but worth it for me. I loved every minute of it. I hope to have a chance to tell me my next 20 years and ongoing tech story in the US.
