TRAVEL LOG... ENTERPRISE 2.0, NETKAL, CHICAGO, FRANCE!
It's been hectic traveling over the past few weeks for work and personal reasons. Two weeks ago I was in Boston (June 18-21) for the Enterprise 2.0 conference, which was informative and interesting to learn about the movement within our startup's space. Here are some posts on the conference:
Ross Mayfield's notes are here
Cisco's Christie Miranda posts about it here.
Collaborative Thinking's Mike Gotta posts, "Enterprise 2.0 Conference: Meeting Log"
Jason Wood posts on the conference's Launch Pad 2007 here.
After Enterprise 2.0, Christine and I flew down to LA for the start of the NetKAL program. It's a leadership program for mid-career professionals within the Korean American community. The program is organized and hosted by the Center for Asian Pacific Leadership at USC, and we are part of the third class of 24 fellows. One of our friends recommended that we apply, so we did and both of us got accepted. This might be the last non-profit/non-work related activity we do together since Christine and I think we should diversify our experiences and network :)
To be honest, we weren't that big on such a narrowly focused program, but the first weekend training session was well-run and organized. Also the people we met were great, so we thought it was a good decision in hindsight. I'll post about our experiences later on.
Last week, Christine also organized Google's "Asia Tech Renaissance:
Top Tech Trends in China, Taiwan, Korea and India," which went well. Over 200 people attended and it was interesting to listen to the various R&D heads discuss Google's activity in each of their markets.
Yesterday we arrived in Chicago to visit my grandmother, who is sick, and some friends and family. Definitely looking forward to our vacation to the South of France in August. Here's a random picture from last winter's trip to Brazil at Iguacu Falls:
