I would like to tell a story, which is also a review of my past experience.
A long time ago, a student from the art department of an art university made a foolish trip to the open world. It was only out of enthusiasm that I went to participate and learn, and I went in circles, but in the end I found that everything was meaningful. The confusion and impact of the open source spirit of those years, has become the person I am today, with an open vision, a tolerant attitude and open source collaboration. Look to a variety of creations.
Hopefully, my own story will inspire the stories of others, so that the pioneering stories of this land can be tied together.

I am multidislinaried from art to technology and concern the combination and developemnt of technology, design, and art. I hope I can combine those aspects to create more interesting works. During my exploration, I meet free software, open source, hardware and so many technology related things, and as well the communities of which. I am fasinated with the spirit, culture, and pholosiphy of them. Therefore, I establish OpenLab.Taipei community with friends in 2009, and have still been involving into promotion of Floss +Art voluntaryly. I hope the communities will keep grouping up and be a local organic biography. Being fond of DIY, Hack, Make, coding, and through doing by yourself creating works, I run Hackspace/Makerspace in Taipei Artist Village-Treasure Hill, and hold regular events for more interaction among communities. I believe via doing things togather can bring more substantial interaction. Thus, call myself as a Maker because I curate events and spread the idea of open source techniques all the time. That is also how I begin to care and research more about Maker culture and movement.
