Seoul, South Korea

The Project Blackbox Tour was in Seoul, South Korea last week. Did you know that almost half of South Korea's population resides in Seoul? Well, for the November 21st stop, they were also residing in sub-zero (Celsius) temperatures with snow. The cold didn't stop the turnout, as you can see in this picture of the line going into the container:
Here are the same folks in the general session.
As usual, customers had excellent ideas. One customer proposed palm pilots / small screens on the sides of the racks to give status. Does anyone out there use Palm Pilot's for there data center management? Love to hear from you as a usability case study!
Another customer proposed we rename the project to the Sun Ubiquitous Datacenter and the U-Datacenter for short.
Jacob Yang provided this link to a quick walk-through of the unit in Seoul.
Here is a final shot of the Project Blackbox unit by the fountain where the tours were at.
Thanks Jacob for the information!
