About me

I am a tech enthusiast based out of sunny Singapore and this is my everything-under-the-sun blog. I don’t really separate my personal blog and my tech blog because I believe tech is a big part of me and what I am. I am currently the Director of Applied Research in HP Labs Singapore, the advanced research arm of Hewlett-Packard, to build cloud computing solutions using technologies researched on and developed within the labs. I used to consult for Internet startups and still do that occasionally. Check out my other profile here.

    Dear Sirs,

    I’ve found your website while i was looking for a special word at “Google”.
    But “Google” wasn’t able to help me, so I hope that you can help me with my little problem.
    The word that i was looking for is “voyer”.
    I think that it’s an english word…I’m really sure…but i did not find it in the dictionary and at “google”.
    Could you please explain me the meaning of the word “voyer”? (I don’t mean “voyeur”)

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Yours faithfully

    Elena Buchen

    The word ‘voyer’ which you found from my website refers to Jose Anibal Voyer, an origamist who has published some origami books. I happened to fold a particular design of his, an origami cat and wrote a blog post on it with snapshot of the piece.

    Sorry I can’t help you on the word. I don’t think it’s a proper English word though I might be wrong. Check out a dictionary?

    Very Useful website,
    I am recently studying EMV, and I was wondering if you could help me understanding something,
    According to the EMV spec, there are two methods for application selection , one is PSE , the other is List of AIDs,
    I am wondering why we need PSE method?
    I assumes its optional on terminal for certain purpose, but do you know whats the purpose ?
    thank you very much for your help

    my name is sajid ali and i have been reading up on your site and you seem to be a very clever man.basically what i need is a reader/writer to be able to read and write my cashcard and make an exact copy of it.there is also another reader available which you plug into the back of a terminal and it collects the information at the point of sale.but its too expensive.would you be able to make/design one? what would be the cost for the readers?
    look forward to your response.

    How’s the book on RoR coming up? That is something to look forward to.

    We, too are harnessing the power and simplicity of RoR in trying to come up with useful applications. We’re fairly new and have just released our first product called “MorphhelpME” to start the ball rolling.
