About Me

Jerry Liu ImageI live in the City of Cupertino, located within the San Francisco Bay Area, and work at a large tech company on projects ranging from mass consumer products to customized enterprise solutions.

During the day, I work with a group of talented researchers and engineers, putting on different hats for different projects – problem solver, fund raiser, PowerPoint maker, goods peddler, idea nurturer, conflict mediator, and code writer. One constant, throughout these different roles, has been my bird’s eye view of new technologies as they emerge, sometimes playing with them and other times helping to create them.

At night, I am the father of two little girls who see the world through different lenses than I grew up with. They think nothing of singing to their grandparents thousands of miles away on a handheld device and don’t understand why they can’t swipe on the screen to change channels on our family TV. From them, I’m learning how to learn again, while seeing the world in different ways.

In my copious spare time, I do my best to contribute to the community that my kids are growing up in. I am a commissioner for my city, serve on the boards of some local non-profits, and help out with school activities here and there. I’ve also been known to get involved in political campaigns for causes and candidates that I believe in.

The people who work with me know that I carry a composition book with me everywhere I go. I do a lot of writing in these books – notes, thoughts, and, most important of all, questions. I go through several of these books a year and now have cartons of these composition books with their battered and faded colored covers. This blog is an attempt to better capture and organize my ideas and impressions going forward, while contributing to the din of conversations happening all around us.

Welcome to my corner of the world. 🙂
