About Randomwire

Hello, I’m David.

I grew up in the southeast of England in the fine city of Norwich and graduated from Durham University in 2005 where I studied Software Engineering. Since then I’ve worked as a product manager in London, Beijing, ShenzhenHong KongTokyo, Kamakura, and presently Munich.

Randomwire was started in 2003 and focuses on life in Asia, culturedesigntechnology, and travel.

What’s in a name?

The Chinese characters in the logo (随线) literally means ‘random wire’ although originally it was adapted from a longer idiom (随线放矢 – Sui xian fang shi or 有的放矢 – You di fang shi) which means to speak or act with a well-defined objective in mind. A bit of an oxymoron perhaps!
