An idea worth spreading

I can share so many things to you, so if you want some ideas, then just contact me. One saying I like it is "'Our' actions make 'us'." We can be 'us' by our action.

I'm passionate about

all fields. not only science and technology. From this, I want to be crossdisciplinary expert in many fields. and actually, I'm helping many people around me in many fields.

Talk to me about

your experience in any fields. any thing can make me exciting. especially transportation system, science and technology, politics, your plan for sustainability and arts.

People don't know I'm good at

information gathering, integrating. and observation and analyzing anything. Also I'm good at supporting the others in many ways by myself to make better work.

My TED story

I met TED first time in 2009. Maybe I heard about that before by chance, but I do not remember about that. In 2010. I attended many TEDx events in Korea just as an attendee for several events, as a volunteer for TEDxSeoul and as an organizer for TEDxKAIST. I'm founding member of TEDxKAIST from 2010 when I was 17 years old. and I participated to TEDx community in Korea for short period like TEDxSeoul Tribe or something like that. Also, I'm TED Translator, too. These days, I didn't translate any talks, but I'm translating one of the TED Senior Fellow, who I met him in August 2012, Cesar Harada's Unreasonable Sea project blog posting. In 2013, I attended TEDGlobal 2013 in Edinburgh and I was so impressed about that and I will change many things around me soon.

Joe Smith: How to use a paper towel
I watched this talk 1 month ago, and when I have to use paper towel, I'm doing 'shake and fold'. but one problem is when I shaking, many water droplets are moving to any direction. It goes to mirror, floor and many other direction so some people don't like it about that. and one suggestion is how about changing 'shake' to 'clap'? clapping also can make water away from the hands. and clapping is good for health because it can stimulate the blood circulation.
