Hi! I'm Kayau. I've been here for some years. I used to be Wikibooks' annoying-12-year-old-in-residence, but I've since become the project's annoying-17-year-old-in-residence.
I used to be active on other projects, most significantly the English Wikipedia and Wikinews, and the Chinese Wikibooks. However, these days, enwb is the project which I call my home.
In Wikipedia, I'm often at the WP:MOTD, but I obviously do more than motto-writing. :P
Stuff I created:
- Some stuff in Geometry for Elementary School
- Chinese Stories (whole book)
- WJ:Particles (whole book)
- WJ:The Book of Estimation
- History of Hong Kong
Honestly, I know I have a habit of starting books and not finishing them. The stuff I've started and not finished will be finished... one day.
I think I'll revive Intro to C++ too.
Books I hope I can eventually work on (another way of saying 'courses I intend to take in university')
- Grammatical Description
- Lexical Functional Grammar
- Minimalist Programme
- Optimality Theory
- Experimental Phonetics
- Language Acquisition
- Artificial Intelligence
- Programming Languages
- Operating Systems
- Discrete Mathematics
- Cantonese (my native language, so shouldn't be hard)
- Classical Chinese (there are errors on the main page -_-)
My wish is to contribute to Wikibooks and help myself consolidate what I've learnt simultaneously. Every time I finish a course, I'll have finished a book (although I may start in summer early, as you can see). For example, I'll finish my first linguistics course by the end of the year, so I'll have finished Linguistics by then. I hope each book I complete will eventually be featured!
Books I'm Reading
Books I plan to read:
Note to everyone: My signature has been changed to Kayau ( talk | email | contribs ) 04:19, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Yet another note to everyone: I will be a bit more active starting from tomorrow because I have just finished w:Manufacturing in Hong Kong.
Another note to everyone: if you see an IP that starts with 113 in the RC page, it's probably me forgetting to log in. Kayau ( talk | email | contribs ) 04:46, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Note: I will be inactive here for the rest of the year starting from tomorrow, HKT. Please use me zhwb talk page or email if you have to contact me. I will log on to enwn (maybe even zhwn, but there isn't too much to read there) also, so don't be surprised to see me commenting on news. For details please visit my enwp userpage. Thanks.

Note: This is impossible. I can't stay away. I'll still contribute though less actively from now on. Until December. To contact me, you can use this page though it's not guaranteed that I'll reply asap. Kayau ( talk | email | contribs ) 14:32, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Note: My 'interest' is shifting to studying right now, but I'll still log on at large and irregular intervals.Kayau14:10, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
Um, hi. I'm back-ish. I'm not going to participate actively or patrol recent changes any more, and the old books I've half-finished that have been gathering dust, well, those I'll also leave untouched for the moment. I'm currently writing 'books' for HKDSE geography. To be honest, there will be little to distinguish them from personal notes, except for more organisation and exam-oriented features like past paper references. Alright. HKDSE Geography, here I go.
