Here comes the first article. It will be very short this time.
To start with, I have decided to maintain a blog about my various activities (both professional and personal), and share my thoughts and experiences with whoever wants to know about it.
I am creating this blog just the day before departure for Shenzhen, China, to attend an MPEG meeting. I hope you will visit again this blog. Look around, send me a comment, or register to receive a message when I create a new article.
Was it too short? Well....let me just add my bio below in case you want to know more about the person behind this blog.
