PureHype is a personal journal, photo log and lifestream by Alvin Tan – an aviator obsessed with the sky, airplanes, technology and gadgets

The author

Hi, my name is Alvin. I was born and raised in Singapore for the last twenty years. I'm obsessed with the sky, airplanes, technology and gadgets. I've been traveling around the world for the last couple of years that I've lost count on the number of times I've visited the airport. Anyhow, this is where I document encounters in my life and related interests.

Say hello and follow Alvin on twitter.

The site

PureHype is hosted on Media Temple and content managed by Wordpress. What started off as a personal freelance web-programming project almost 5 years ago has evolved from a hand-coded static content design to an artificial intelligence dynamic publishing platform.

This is the forth incarnation of the site after what seems to be a long layoff from the previous version. An archive of this site's previous design has been made available for preservation and viewing.
