Midnight at the Oasis

It’s 8:15 am on Monday in California, and 12:17 am Tuesday here in Seoul.
In the past 36 hours, I have started to see a bit of Seoul, an interesting new city, and have met dozens of people from all over the world: Egypt, Cameroon, Mali, Jordan, Finland, Germany, Italy, Nigeria, China, France, India, the UK and Korea.
I met and talked with Krishna Bharat, creator of Google News, and helped two people start blogs (hope to help a whole bunch more!).
I’ve told 5 people about Skype, and three about Feedster, Technorati, PubSub and Blogdigger.
Planning for Shanghai and now Beijing is almost complete–just have to work out hotel and tickets for the new leg of the trip.
Attending a global conference is wonderful; I’ll post some pictures and share impressions of where the attendees are re social media tomorrow am.
