My 2 fave people

I've been FlipFaced!

A while ago, I saw a tweet by @Veronica talking about her new FlipFace avatar. I had a look and it was really sweet! I’ve been wanting a cartoon-style avatar for a long time and at USD10 a pop I didn’t even blink twice! Check out my very own avatar:

What do you think? Tell me in the comments (but please be gentle :P)

In my personal opinion, I think the artist Len Peralta did a great job. I’m using it as my Twitter avatar, and I think it really stands out. Get your own FlipFace too! And be sure to follow @jawboneradio on Twitter!

P.S. If you’re looking for a different style of avatar, you can also check out Fast Icon caricatures which I had almost purchased.

6 weeks in

It’s been roughly 6 weeks since I’ve started up Buzzmedia again. This is a post to update you on what I’ve been up to and try to explain what it is that I do (since lots of people don’t understand).

First, God has been good in providing me with a steady stream of projects so that I don’t starve to death. In fact, my income for July was almost equal my last drawn salary at AGENDA. Encouraging, but still a long way to go.

Second, I will not attempt to explain what is it exactly that I do for a living now, with examples from the past 6 weeks. Read More »

On my own again

After about a year since I joined AGENDA, I am striking it out on my own again. Lot’s of friends and colleagues have asked me why and it’s quite difficult to explain. To help explain (and remind myself why I made this decision), I’ve created this little graphic:

This is a picture of peanut butter scooped straight down one half of the jar. I’ve always wanted to do this since I read this Calvin and Hobbes strip.

I may be 27 years old, but I’m still a kid inside ๐Ÿ˜‰

The strip above found with Transmogrifier Search. I believe you can see the strip in the 10th anniversary book (right).

Screen addiction

my cube at work, originally uploaded by thisgirlangie

I’ve noticed a disturbing thing that I do. Call it a habit. Or an addiction.

I’m addicted to screens. I sit in front of the tv with my MacBook or iPod touch. On a long car ride I play games or watch videos on my iPod. If the battery runs out I go online with my lousy mobile and GPRS connection. And don’t forget work, where I stare at the screen 8 hours a day.

I’m David Wang, and I’m a screen addict.

Back to work

A year ago I ditched my old job and began life as an entrepreneur. But this past month I’ve gone back to work for ‘the man’. In this case the man is AGENDA, a forward-looking interactive, digital agency. They’re forward-looking because they realise that the web is changing and that the social web is the next big thing. Which is the reason they’ve hired me.


At AGENDA, I’m the ‘social media guy’. I’m helping them wrap their brains around what social media means and to help build up their social media capabilities. My CEO is an early pioneer of web technology in Malaysia but he’s still learning and always wanting to improve.

Lots of people have asked why I decided to join AGENDA. Well, AGENDA gives me lots of opportunities to do social media work, with some really great clients. In this first month, I’m already working on clients like Xbox and Maybank. AGENDA is already a leader in digital media and once it incorporates social media into its portfolio, we’re pretty darn kick-ass.

Also, it turns out that I’m not such a great entrepreneur. Yes, I’m not afraid to strike it out on my own but I’m also not afraid to admit my shortcomings. Sure, I was paying my bills and I could probably also work with blue chip clients if I had continued on my path, but it would have taken much longer. AGENDA is a shortcut to my career goal I guess. Plus, I was disorganised as hell and a steady income and job security isn’t bad either…

So what happens to Buzzmedia? Well, existing clients will continue to be supported. I won’t be actively soliciting clients, but I’ll still help friends with their online marketing. In the meantime, the website will be a holding place for my upcoming book… ๐Ÿ˜›


My girlfriend just bought a Sony Walkman NW-E002F. When will I manage to make her see the light?
