Awesome. Thank you so much!
So your parents were also quite conservative?
And my final question just for myself, so I know that some Taiwanese youth are also transgendered and they have trouble coming up to their parents and I was wondering how personally came out to your parents and what advice you would have for youth to deal with parents?
So you can download it on the internet?
Finally, someone has responded: "I love your dictionary apps. Can you make their databases available for Pleco? (Primary Chinese dictionary app for foreigners)"
Was there a reason you decided on that policy like that you want to make everything transparent?
What can we do about Taiwan’s critical cyber security weaknesses?
What programs are you using for English and Chinese now?
Do you type on Dvorak?
Why did you think climate change was the most pertinent reason to invite president-elect Trump to come to Taiwan (as opposed to say, tech development or security with China)?
Do you think the TPP will still go through or do you think it’s gone...?
How does the US administration affect your job as digital minister?
What was your initial reaction to the US presidential election and how do you think it will affect your current work as Digital Minister?
What is Taiwan’s plan for the future of work in an age of ever improving automated manufacturing and AI machine learning? Could Taiwan introduce a UBI? and we might need to explain to our audience what UBI is.
Next question is "What kind of music do you usually listen to?"
How involved are you in the transgender and LGBTQ politics in Taiwan? Have you been able to speak about these issue with the Executive Yuan or President Tsai?
So you would consider that yourself a feminist or?
Would you consider yourself as a feminist? According to you what is the status of women in Taiwan?
Do you feel like Taiwan’s exclusion from the United Nations have hampered our efforts to contribute to be international society at all?
Are there any troubles you run into in this capacity?
Is there any particular data from Taiwan that you feel would be a special importance to the international community?
First question is from anonymous: In reply to your recent tweet to @realDonaldTrump about climate change, how do you view climate change and what are you working on, or would like to work on, to help?
So as a minister without portfolio do you actually have any sway to making this happen, for example, making the entrepreneur visa more accessible or easier?
There is much talk about how Taiwanese companies need to “go global.” What do you think about that? What’s stopping them from going global? How can our international audience be helpful?
We are going to move on to the startup environment in Taiwan. "Go start companies” seem to have become a fashionable trend in Taiwan. As someone who has worked with and founded startups before, what do you think of this trend?
Is there for example collaborating with different media to get the word out about these platforms? Because I know a lot of people when they read the news they look very angry and very impassioned about whatever it is they read, and they want to do something. It seems like ...
Are we doing anything or are you doing anything to get the word out about the availability these platforms?
How is this different from for example "Change.org" or more platforms like that people can propose petitions?
Are there concrete programs they’re doing this too? Or it’s just like through po.lis and platforms like that?
So basically you guys are putting all of the risk at the beginning when you are making the policy?
Taiwanese bureaucracy is known to be conservative and very risk-averse. How would you move them to try to do something different?
Can you explain again how that the cross opinion works?
So the system allows people in the majority to give feedback and try to convince people who don’t agree previously that their views are more persuasive.
At your panel on World Design Capital Taipei 2016 you mentioned the need for a tool to “collect more public opinions.” How do you moderate against rampant populism, problems such as “trial by public opinion,” or having the most fringe opinions become the loudest opinions?
Moving on to our next topic which is about government work. So what projects are you currently working on to increase public participation in government?
So do you think that they made that policy because of the Sunflower Movement, or they didn’t have to do deal with that at all?
What inspired you to come out of retirement and join the ministry?
So you would view the freedom of speech, et cetera, as things that are like traditional values, though these were things that we suppressed, for example, at the founding of the Republic of China.
Can you explain a little bit how that ties into your views as a "conservative anarchist?
Oh okay! Thank you so much. Tell me a little bit how you grew up to be interested in the intersection of democracy and technology. What unique educational experiences, or work experiences, have shaped your views?
Tell us a little bit about how you grew up. As I understand you were sort of a...child savant.
