Where's Gangnam?

When somebody did mention "PSY" during a dinner at OOW this year with customers and colleagues from Korea I was completely clueless. I even didn't understand correctly who or what "PSY" is. I did forget about that until last week as a German online magazine did report on over 500 mio youtube hits for "Gangnam Style". Well ... I didn't know that I've almost missed a global phenomenon. And now I've learned that the song is omnipresent in Korea (and not only here) - and Gangnam is a really nice (and expensive) quarter of Seoul :-) not that far away from my hotel.

And if you need some rest during your lunch break you may watch these youtube vids - but don't blame me if you don't get the song out of your head anymore ...

And NO - that's not the type of music I'd usually listen to!!!

OTN APAC Tour 2012: Bangkok, Thailand - RECAP

Thanks to everybody who did attend at the OTN APAC Tour in Bangkok on Monday, Oct 21. It was a pleasure for me to be back in Bangkok again even though I didn't have much time again due to my overnight flight to Seoul after the workshop.

But thanks for your questions - I will follow up as soon as I'm getting back home. And thanks to Francisco Alvarez, Oracle ACE Director from New Zealand, for inviting me. It was a pleasure presenting together with Francisco, Kamran Nagayev, Oracle ACE Director from Azerbaidjan and Tanakorn Tavornsasnavong from Bangkok. I have learned a lot during that day.

Mike Dietrich, Francisco Alvarez Munos, Kamran Agayev

In case you'd like to download my presentations from this day please find theme via this link. You may access the other slides on either the local OTN page or get them directly from Francisco's blog and Kamran's blog (and you'll find a lot of excellent and helpful articles there as well).

And many thanks to the local OTN group organizing the entire event so well :-) 

Hope to see you soon again :-)
