Seven Things for me
- The reason to use Internet in first was to get examples from Wolfram Research Institute that made very good software Mathematica. Actually I majored in Geology and Physics in minor. When I studied differential equation in 1994, I found Mathematica book printed email address firstname.lastname@example.org to get demo files. So I wanted to get email address email@example.com in my college. Thanks Wolfram!
- I was a student to become Creation scientist who believe there are scientific evidences of young earth created by God. The talk.origins was the most favorite newsgroup for me and joined voting to make sci.bio.palentalogy (succeeded) and talk.catastrophism (failed). As well my first paper was published as a title of “Creation Chronology based on so-called Viewpoint Hypothesis” in senior as the youngest author in Journal of Integrated Studies in 1995.
- My first trip abroad was Dallas, Texas to present my poster paper in AAPG annual convention in 1997. I just shocked cultural difference and scale of continent. Especially I enjoyed southern style party with rock-n-roll band putting on cowboy hat in closing day. I cannot forget this memory.
- I have the first XML 0.9 specification with red covered short paper. In my first trip in US, I also attended World-wide Web Conference 1997 in Santa Babara. In small booth of Sun Microsystems, it was distributed. It’s one of memorial papers in my life and web history.
- Actually my first job for Mozilla was to contribute Mozilla 1.0 Korean version in 2002. But, the story goes way back to 1998. I was made Mozilla Korean page and let others know my job in i18n newsgroups. However, long milestone period failed to me.
- My Korean blog has 6 years old in this year. I started it to arrange my columns in Mar. 27th in 2003. Now Feedburner reader reached 9,000 counts with 1,000 articles. My articles were tagged in order of Web 2.0, Firefox, Google, Daum, Web Standards and Microsoft.
- I was the first founder Internet music broadcasting in Korea, name of Nine4u.com. (now it shut down.) It was one of top 50 Internet radios in the world by Timecast.com. It was my first job in this industry and very enjoyable time to do with my wife who majored in music composition. If you’re interested in Korean wave(Hanryu), you can refer to Pops Goes to Korea by Mark James Russell.
- Greg Stein – He is one of my respectable open source gurus and he lived in facebook now.

- Taewoo Danny Kim – Danny is the first full-time blogger in Korea and web 2.0 evangelist.
