This city is rocking! People have mobile cameras that make those in American look stone age. My favorite had super high resolution screen that I watched as it displayed streaming television and then a movie. The GSM car systems show you the fastest route from here to there, live. Taxis with sensors are used to detect rates of traffic flow that are analysed and route routes are plotted and transmitted. Laptops are paper thin and light as a feather. Screen resolutions are high definition television quality. If you want to predict where the world is going with mobile devices, stop in and look at Seoul. It’s way cool, believe me.
Monday evening I saw my first elevator contest in Seoul. Thanks to creative Cornell students, contestants leaped through a mock elevator door and did their three minute pitches. See the photo to believe me. Lots of energy and several creative ideas. Try this at your local entrepreneurial meetings. First prize won a meeting with a local venture capitalist.
My evening presentation was politely received in quiet Asian style. While I received positive comments in return, I was again confronted with how tricky it is to explain unfair advantage to a newcomer. Well, that simply means some re-write of my presentations for tomorrow. So keep working on your own understanding and then you’ll be well ahead of the competition.
I'm looking forward to the Wednesday evening presentation at the BlueRun Ventures event in Seoul. www.brv.com . I'll tell you all about it.
