About me...

Thought I should introduce myself before I start rambling things...
My name is Joseph S. Lee, a blind college student majoring in computer science at University of California, Riverside. I was born in seoul, South Korea and moved to United States in 2001 (when I was 11). at first, I lived in Ontario, California, attending Haynes Elementary before moving onto middle school program for blind students at Ontario High School. Then after going to three middle schools (including OHS, Gage Middle in Riverside and Irving in Los Angeles), I graduated from John Marshall High School (in L.A.) in 2008 and enrolled at UCR studying computer science.
I was blind from birth (I forgot the name of the condition, sorry), and attended a special school for blind students in Seoul. In the United States, I attended mainstream schools and am now so far, and the first, blind engineering student at UCR - something that I am proud and feels responsibility at the same time.
My main interests are mostly computers and trends in cell phones and assistive technology, specifically how blind students use notetakers to accomplish their tasks, accessible cell phones and mobile screen readers, and advocacy in accessible in general. I use a special computer for the blind (called BrailleNote) and a screen reader (called JAWS for Windows) - in fact, I'm using JAWS to compose my blog and use my BrailleNote to read it on the go. My eventual goal is to become a computer science instructor at a high school - so that I can teach future students on how to program things. I also plan to be a music minister (using musical talents that God gave me).
Well, hope this gives you a big portrait of who I am... Now to the random ramblings...

  8. This is an exquisite advancing age, any article, emphasizing practical and quality, but also the appearance of a very important consideration criteria. Basin tap certainly not backward, modern home space, http://www.cheaptap.co.uk/kitchen-taps-led-kitchen-taps-c-22_25.html is not just a practical tool, it can also transform himself into a work of art. Now designers draw inspiration from the tradition, through a new way to interpret the ordinary common equipment tap makeover. Break the conventional mode of operation, by twisting down spout control switch, simple and practical. This policy led to the intuition of similar rare in today's designs. At present, many kitchen sink taps water temperature can be adjusted independently, but now particularly good way to adjust the design and appearance off concept, both stylish.
