I was invited to moderate a panel, The Ubiquitous Society – Towards a Hyperconnected World, at 6th, Feb in the Forum NetExplorateur in Paris.

As one of the themes of this forum this year is the Korea Web, a few Korean friends were invited: Jaewoong Lee is an admirable guy who founded one of the largest Korean portal, Daum and now works as a VC. Need mention that YouKu, the leading Chinese video site is in his portfolio. Chang, a good friend of mine, the founder member of OpenWeb.Asia Workgroup and initiator of OpenWebAsia conference, is now a Google guy after he sold his company TNC to Google. Heewon KIM, a pretty girl, a sociologist as she calls herself, is a researcher on Korea social web from University of YongSei. Mrs. Heekyung Min, a very nice lady from New Songdo city, is the General Director Incheon Free Economic Zone Authority (IFEZ). The discussion was also joined by some international friends, such as Patrice Nordey, Director of Atelier BNP Paribas Asia and Laurent Haug, cofounder of LIFT Conference.

As these Korean guests are all involved with Korean web industry but focus on different areas, the discussion on the Korea web was quite interesting and informative. Here are the notes to share with you:
