Joi Ito, Dan Gillmor on Korea's blogging scene

An insightful series of travelogue posts from Joi Ito, who is presently geeking out among bloggers in SoKo.

Korea is reported by the OECD to have the highest high-speed Internet penetration of any nation. Korea has an extremely vibrant gaming, blogging, mobile phone and youth culture scene and I was eager to find out more about what was going on.


And more from Dan Gillmor, who is also wandering in the land of ubiquitous connectivity:

Koreans are taking to the blog format, but they do it differently. For example, linking out isn't as common as with U.S. bloggers, who make it a practice to point to other people's material. I'm still not sure why this is the case.
