Interview with John Xie

John Xie is the president of Cirtex Corporation. John was kind enough to spend some time on an interview with TAZ. :)

First of all John, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to be a part of this interview. To start off could you tell us a little about yourself?

No problem. Aside from running HostV, I love reading about technology and the new gadgets coming out.

What sparked your interest in web hosting and computers in general?

What does your typical workday entail? Is there a certain routine you go about?

However I tend to try to make everyday a new/different day with small goals to accomplish as to brighten up the day and make it more productive.
