Lloyd Abria Luna

This is the birth of www.lloydluna.iwarp.com

HE could hardly recall the first day he got to an internet cafe to do some technical jobs.

He didn't care much of the stuffs saw. In fact, he was stupid of these www. For him, technology is just a technology that may be utilized or not depending on one's mood.

However, his perception took the other other side of the coin when he realized that this technology will bring him him out where he should be--to the WORLD.

As a debater

A hot scene in debate experience of Lloyd.
