About

december 10, 2005

Hi, my name is Steve Kong, otherwise known as Mookie (rent Do The Right Thing to see where I got the name from). This is my journal (I started doing this before the whole "blog" thing came around) of sorts. I write randomly about things that interest me at any given point in time. But, usually, I will be writing about my life, technology, my job, gadgets, movies, gaming, and movies. I am a waning fan of Apple stuff. I have been a Mac user since System 7 and am currently using a Powerbook 15" 1.67Ghz (early 2005 edition). I have an iPhone 8GB, iPod 4G 40GB, iPod nano 2GB (black) and an iPod shuffle 512MB. I am also a big fan of Linux distributions and am particular to any flavor that comes from a Red Hat lineage. I am a Unix geek. I was born and raised in California and have spent most of my life living in the Silicon Valley. Wish me a happy birthday on June 22nd if you remember. I spent many years working at Sony Electronics before moving to Yahoo! where I am currently. During the time I was at Sony, I traveled extensively and you can read about those days in my blog (somewhere between 2001 and 2003). I currently reside in South San Jose with my beautiful wife, Eileen. In December 2006, our beautiful boy, Jacob arrived. He is the center of our lives. I am a tall (6'4") Chinese dude with a big goofy smile. And, that is the extent of the About page.
