Welcome. 8164.org is the personal and professional blog of Jin Yang. I’ve been working in the web design field since 1995. Currently I’m working as the Creative Director at Stack Exchange.
In 2004 during a visit to China, while waiting for my plane at the Beijing airport, I picked up two books of Taoism, Tao Te Ching (道德經 Dao De Jing) and I Ching (易經 Yi Jing). I had a rough idea of what Taoism is since I was born and raised in China. However, i merely saw these books as ancient literature growing up, nothing else. After reading every chapter, I was very humbled and enlightened by the life lessons from the books. The philosophical Taoism, Dao Jia emphasizes on inner peace through being in harmony with nature, and living a balanced life.
The modern world we live in today has changed so much since Lao Zi wrote Tao Te Ching over 2500 years ago. Practicing Tao beliefs has given me much inner peace and has helped me to deal with everyday life in a very profound way.
Oh yeah about the domain name 8164.org, there are 81 chapters in Tao Te Ching, and 64 chapters in I Ching. Hence the domain. I intend to translate every single chapter into English, and post on this site among my design related topics. It will be a long term, ongoing personal project.
