Anthony Townsend on Seoul

Long-time Seoul observer Anthony Townsend’s just published a new pieceSeoul searching ? cybernomads and the ubiquitous city–on the evolution of wireless computing and digital media in Korea. A sippet:
” In the last five years, the wireless revolution has sparked the next phase of development in Seoul’s highly sophisticated digital culture. In the back alleys and board rooms, this chaotic urban maelstrom is being transformed into a new kind of place organized around convenience and connectivity. Three primary forces are shaping the future of Korean cyberculture – big business, the government, and Korean citizens.”
This is a good strong piece that has much relevance to understanding emerging mobile in the US.
Oh, and welcome to Palo Alto, Anthony!
