The former head of Information Technology at the UN in New York with whom I discussed creating a collective intelligence for the Secretary-General of the UN several years ago (the idea got lost in politics), is now the head of future strategy for the new President of Korea. I met with him at the Blue House (Office of the President) about future collaboration with MP.
MoneyToday Media and its K.E.Y Platform conference brought me to Korea to give the closing planetary address on the next big technologies.
