Who Am I
I am a Deaf person and I use Auslan (Australian Sign Language) to communicate. People might wonder how I can communicate effectively at my workplace. Dont forget I work with computers and thus I have access to the Internet, real time messenging tool (Skype and Windows Messenger), emails and finally lipreading and note writing.
Background:By training and profession, I'm an electrical engineer but I work as a community liaison officer / technical writer.
I've tried over the years to learn a little about a lot of things. I sometimes envy the great people of the Renaissance especially Leonardo Da Vinci who had a very real possibility of learning a large fraction of all human knowledge. But when I think of all we have achieved since then and I know I have the better deal.
My Motto:"Karma: do good to others that others can do good to you"
Favorite quotes:"Imagination is more important than knowledge." -- Albert Einstein.
"Science is a way of trying not to fool yourself." -- Richard Feynman
"For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream." -- Vincent van Gogh
