The Blogerati Files: GadgetMan's Blog

This week in the Blogerati Files - Alvin Chin's GadgetMan

Describe your blog in 10 words or less.
A blog about technology, research and gadgets.

Why did you start your blog? Blogiversary?
To communicate to the public about my passion for gadgets, my research and my love for technology. My blog's birthday is August 18.

Has blogging changed you or enhanced a personality trait?
I don't think blogging has changed me. But it has enhanced my passion for technology, research and gadgets to cyberspace, instead of to just my friends and classmates. I have to keep up my reputation as Gadget Man.

Do you have a favourite post from your blog?
My favorite post is this one, about how I just blogged away about Windows crashing in public.

Who are your fav bloggers?
Sacha Chua
Lilia Efimova
Joey de Villa (aka AccordionGuy)
Robert Scoble

Best blogger hangout in TO?
I've never really been to a blogger hangout in TO, except the blogging workshop I organized at CASCON.

Lose any friends or muck something up because of a post?

Choose someone, living or dead, to write your biography. Why did you >make that choice?
Jesus, because He is the focus of my life. Everything revolves around him.

If your blog were a food, what food would it be?
Spare ribs because I love to eat them.

If you could gather all of the bloggers of the world together into one room and tell them one thing, what would it be?
Love others as you love yourself.

Anything else you'd like to add...
