Am in Seoul today and an invited speaker at the Korean Innovation & Architectural conference in Seoul. This event hosted by The Korea Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) in conjunction with all major IT bodies in Korea is the premier event of its kind in the region(That's what my friends and colleagues tell me). Seoul is glittering - I keep coming here almost every quarter and go back admiring the greatness of the Koreans in building all these in less than 3/4 decades. Bravo. Seoul is the most advanced city in the world -in using technology(may be competing with Tokyo on this), it is a marvel to see the way they have integrated technology to their daily lives. In Korea, the academic -industry linkage is very tightly woven and surprisingly, the respect the academics enjoy with the global Korean majors are very high. It has to be seen to be believed and in all major initiatives industry ensures that the acads take the lead and hence the constituition of the conference as it remains. Am hardly the guy to talk to academics(no disrespect meant), but am more comfortable with corporate settings where the pace and velocity are very different. The focus of my presentation is on the use of social networks, in particular for the research/advancements on the process of innovation.
