  • Thoughts about tomorrow's Koreabridge Webast

    Been gathering my thoughts in preparation for tomorrow's Koreabridge Webcast. Topics that I'd like to address at some point - either tomorrow or during future webcasts.

    • The Vision/Big Picture
      -a media channel that helps  those interested in Korea connect, learn, and collaborate
      - how  Pweb/KB fit into Worldbridges
    • Standards & Values
      - where do we draw lines?
    • The Business Model
      - show who the money?
    • Community Contribution
      - giving back, starting last year
    • Content Producers
      - what's in it for them?
    • Ratings & Reviews (businesses, employers/recruiters, content)
      - balancing the value of crowdsourcing with the headache of potential lawsuits
    • Forums
      - consolidation?  range of categories?
    • Advertising
      - more than banner ads, interactive advertising
    • Other Sites
      - collaborate if interested, cordial co-existence (no Pweb mafia)
    • Tech Stuff
      - Drupalers wanted,  OpenX vs Google Ad Manager,
  • Kimchi Pancake 김치전

    WHAT'S IN IT?

    (for 3 large kimchi pancakes)

    Flour 1.5 cups
    Water 1.5 cups
    Kimchi 3 cups (sour ones, fermented longer), Kimchi juice is a great bonus!
    Eggs 3
    Salt 1/2 to 1 teaspoon
    Vegetable oil

    HOW DO I MAKE IT?

    1. Mix all the ingredient together. (except vegetable oil)
    2. Pre-heat a pan on medium heat and oil it.
    3. Pour 2-3 ladles of the mixture (depending on the size the pan).
    Make sure the mixture is evenly spread throughout the pan.
    4. Cook until one side is golden brown and flip.

  • BK International House

    There I was, minding my own business in my 2 X 3 metre koshiwon, when all of a sudden I find out that there's a vacancy for me at the BK International House. My new residence is located just outside the back gate of the university and I can walk to and from the lab now. Joy.
  • Busan- Bumbling on.........Fitness time!...

    Busan, 5/3/09.The Busan BoysDuring my time here, I have had the fortune to be part of one of the best drinking crews I've ever had. Why is this? Maybe because unlike college or University, we're all here for similar reasons ( Economic in some cases, cultural in others). Most of all, we're all teachers, which, while not being a failsafe towards sparkling conversation, means we all have a similar ba...
