In 2005-2007, I was the keynote speaker at several conferences in Korea, the US, and the Middle East. Most of the invitations came as a result of a startup company that I founded in Korea called U-Life (Ubiquitous Life). The company is focused on building a ubiquitous computing infrastructure across an entire city in Korea called Songdo City.
Although I’ve always felt comfortable speaking in front of an audience, it’s really nerve wracking trying to give a presentation in your second language. Needless to say I had sweaty palms at most of these conferences. Here are some photos from the U-City Forum in Seoul (2005).
