Seoul Digital City blog
|See an interesting blog Seoul Digital City by Anthony, who's doing his research project on the Korean broadband phenomenon.|
The following quote is from a post "Is Korean Cyberculture Just Regular Old Korea On Broadband?"
The following short quote doesn't do justice to all the interesting stuff that's in there, but just to give a taste:
Here's a massive oversimplification of what's feeding into this:I especially like the idea to compare the "whiz-bang look" of Korean website to the urban Korean streetscapes. I wouldn't dare to take the idea beyond aesthetic sensibilities yet.
These ideas and the contents of Anthony's blog are interesting especially as the neighborhood and the small businesses there that I've been doing working on are often seen if not antithesis but being lacking severely behind in the modern project of Korea. (Not that it would lack the PC rooms...)
