    My contribution.
    Just yesterday first time I've discovered English sources about tech startups in Korea.
    - http://besuccess.com/eng/
    - http://www.venturesquare.net/ , at least the editor here is Andrew from NZ.
    - http://linkedseoul.org/ , some platform to socialize with the business community.

    Finally, some international events in Korea.
    - http://angelhack.com/ , June, 1 : hackathon to kick off a startup.
    - http://belaunch.com/eng/ , May,1 : startup conference + hackathon, but it's expensive (~$170 for a ticket).

    And an official blog of Advanced Korean Technologies http://www.advancedtechnologykorea.com/ .

      I Registered for the angelhack, some people wanting to make a team?

      April 19, 2013

    • Nikolay A.

      Yeah, I was thinking about the angelhack as well. May be, we can prepare for this event using our Seoul Tech Society as a platform. Let's talk tonight.

    Dear Seoul Tech Society members, please confirm if you are coming to the event this Friday. If you CAN'T or plan to be only for the PARTY TIME please remove yourself from the guest list so that someone else can take your place. Thank you!

    For the PARTY TIME only attendees, please leave your comment here and call to Nikolay [masked]) on Friday at 9pm for the exact place.
    It will be somewhere near the Shinchon subway station.

    Here is the link for 10 promising future technologies by "Korea Institute of S&T Evaluation and Planning" shared in our company.

    Unfortunately, it's only in Korean. I understood basics that life caring (insterests of Angie) is on the top.

    I hope Korean members may comment most interesting moments from this article in English.

      I think the most useful thing is wearable robot. I like last one though - distance working environment.

    Recent topics i came across that might be of moderate interest:

    - An article
    "A history of computer networking and the Internet in Korea" http://online.qmags.com/COMG0213?pg=13&mode=2

    - A book

      Thnx, Alexander

    • Nikolay A.

      It will take some time to read especially as the book has some volume. But it seems interesting as I understood from the introduction it's how to use the Internet as a platform to build other applications.

      April 1, 2013

  • Nikolay A.

    Currently, the event is scheduled on Friday, April 12, 2013 at 7pm that we may have smart and fun (with beer) night.
    Please, take a poll if you want to reschedule it on Saturday, April 13, 2013.

    The poll is until Tuesday, April 2, 2013.

    March 28, 2013

    • Angie M.

      For me, Saturday is much better :)

      March 30, 2013

    • Nikolay A.
