Kwak.org domain address was registered during the undergraduate years when I was majoring in business. One of the many enjoyable courses I took during the first year was computer information system, and I still remember the first day of class from more than a decade ago. It was raining outside and I managed to find a seat in the first row of the auditorium. It was a large class – introductory courses generally have a large class size and several unregistered students show up on the first class hoping to obtain a registration number from the professor. Picture 50 freshmen chatting and anxiously waiting for their professor to arrive and present the curriculum - I was excited.

Fast forward few weeks into the quarter, I came upon reading about how domain names are an important part of a corporation’s brand. I was introduced to the internet in high school and back then I did not know the value of a domain name. Right when the class ended, I clearly remember speed-walking to the computer lab and to search for a personal domain name. I visited Godaddy.com to search if my surname was available; Kwak.com was taken and Kwak.net was taken. Typed in Kwak.org – the domain name was available! I took out my credit card and registered it immediately. I was now a proud owner of my own surname. Who knows – a decade later, I might have my own nonprofit organization and decide to use Kwak.org for that purpose. But for now, I’m satisfied to use it for my homepage.

Lastly, other social networking websites that I have an account includes LinkedIn.com/in/kevinkwak, Twitter.com/kkwak and Facebook.com/kevinkwak. Please note that I rarely use those websites except LinkedIn, and I am NOT on any other social networking websites.
