About Playground

This is my playground, my personal blog site where my random thought sits. I will be writing about trend in technology, open source, life in general, things happening in Sydney, and my faith in Jesus Christ. A big mix of things, isn't it?

About Scott

G'Day! to whoever accidentally steps into this web site. My name is Scott YANG, but you can just call me scotty (my usually login name). I have been blogging here since late 2001.

I was born on a little island in the south east Asia called Taiwan in the mid-70's, and had spent my first fourteen years living over there. My family migrated to the country of Down Under in 1990, and I've lived in a town called the Gold Coast for the first five years. I finished my high school and spent my deprived childhood over there.

In 1995 I moved to Sydney to start my tertiary study in the University Of New South Wales. I did a Computer Engineering degree. After spending four and half years doing assignments and craming for exams, I have finally graduated from my course with a class 1 honour in 1999.

I became a Christian in October '94. I am currently attending the FOCUS Mandarin Church on Sunday mornings on the UNSW campus. Like most Chrisitans, I believe that good man goes to hell and bad man goes to heaven.

Vivian and I got married on 8 April 2000, and now we are living in a nice old semi close to the uni. Both of us are now serving in the same church and the same Bible fellowship. Both of us enjoy good food (Vivian is a great cook).

And yeah. I have got two daughters -- Anna, born in 2004, and **Elsie, born in 2007. They kept me busy most of the time. Can't wait to see them growing up!
