Guidelines for a successful techno-sabbatical

Nov 06, 2013 in Personality

In August I took a week long techno-sabbatical, completely self-imposed, of course. As a digital native, I have been consumed by being always-on connected–I had built a reputation that I could be reached at all times, and that my own personal space was open to anyone who asked: I checked Email, Facebook, Twitter, and other […]

Tony Chung is on techno-sabbatical Aug 19 to 24

Aug 19, 2013 in Personality

Those who know me know I have a difficult time being disconnected. As a child I had to stay up late so that I wouldn’t miss anything. I argue that I have to keep up with “all that computer stuff” because it’s my job. But really, it’s a dumb habit I got into, checking my […]

Back in the 90s I created a persona for myself. So help me out, people: Do I keep the pseudonym, or recreate my musical brand under my real name?

Kristen tells the story of the communal chamber pot

I should be thankful that we live in an age with running water, and proper waste removal. While on our tour of Fort Erie, the guide told us one of the reasons the Fort smelled so bad back in the day, was because they shared a communal chamber pot between the 200-plus soldiers and other residents. My mistake. I thought it was the laundry tub.

Great weather, great God

Aug 07, 2009 in Personality

All this great weather gives me reason to sing, and so I recorded a quick worship set that lasts about 10 minutes. Of course, it took several hours to edit on Roxio VideoWave, because the program kept crashing at the most inopportune moments (also, it does strange things with moving video titles.) Lift your hands and worship with me, to the video below.

Live worship from my in-laws’ porch

I left some musical space at the end for you to respond to the Holy Spirit in prayer and thanksgiving from your own heart. After all, He wants to hear what’s on your mind. I’m just here to help provide some “atmosphere”.

Travel planning for family fun and finanace

Jul 25, 2009 in Personality

From August 4 to the 20 I’ll be taking the family to visit my wife’s parents in Ontario. In addition to all the fun family stuff, I plan to meet up with other web developers, technical communicators, musicians, worship leaders, and social media afficionados while I’m there.

Pretty exciting stuff. Send me a private message if you have time to meet for coffee.
