He was an assistant professor of Computer Science at Rutgers University from 1984 through 1994; at Rutgers, he was an award-winning teacher, and a world-renowned leader and project manager in the area of Artificial Intelligence. He has published numerous papers, led numerous workshops, was research investigator for several multi-million dollar grants from DARPA (the Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency, that created the original Internet), and co-edited the "state of the art" series, "Artificial Intelligence in Engineering Design" (volumes I, II, and III). He has also been a manager, consultant, teacher, and researcher at many other well-known institutions, including MIT, IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, and Siemens Research.

In 1994, Dr. Tong began applying his twenty years of experience on the Internet to the design and marketing of websites. This led him to create Enchanted Websites. Dr. Tong has led a small staff of friendly professionals in designing, upgrading, and marketing over several hundred commercial and not-for-profit websites, as well as providing state-of-the-art web hosting and domain name services for hundreds of domain names and websites via Host Your Site, the web hosting branch of Enchanted Websites, and Register Your Domain Name, the domain name services branch of Enchanted Websites .
