Another part of Taiwanese society

In my 7+ years of living in Taiwan, professionally I've been primarily involved with the IT industry. This constant exposure to Taiwanese IT people could have distorted my belief about who Taiwanese people are. Luckily through people like Jonathan Lee and other friends, I've been able to gain broader insight about Taiwanese as a whole.

Without my "guides" this other part of Taiwanese society would have been difficult to observe any other way. Many times I remember going to parties, nights out, or other gatherings and literally I would be the only one that wasn't actively working in the music industry. Actually it's a pretty insulated group. I suppose it's true anywhere, but on the whole the personalities of IT people (conservative, logical) and music people (liberal, intuitive) seem to be diametrically opposite (of course, exceptions belong in both).

An additional bonus was getting a unique behind-the-scenes look at the Taiwanese music industry. After visiting several studio sessions, I really found the process that's involved in creating an album quite fascinating and developed a new respect for the effort everyone contributes to try and make a hit album.

Singers may get fame and fortune, but they also work really hard to attain their goals (as well as all the other people working behind the scenes).

I challenge that anyone with any shred of a conscience who observed how hard these people work wouldn't be able to illegally download music and still sleep at night.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
