I made it to the Seoul International Bookfest, or whatever it was called, and had a splendid time. Met some interesting people and may have hooked up some additional support for the KTLIT Wikipedia Project. Got in early and right in the door saw the Korea Foundation exhibit.
It was nicely laid out, but the staff actively avoided me.
At an international book festival? You might want to interact with the internationals.
As i wandered around I was pleased to see something I understood, a publisher who has worked with Kim Young-ha (the “Great Korean Hope” as I call him)…
France was the cohost.. and had a properly existentialist black-themed exhibit. I will forgo all Maginot Line jokes.
KLTI had a great exhibit, including some staff who were a bit timid and some staff who completely rocked. I had a long discussion and have some solid hope that the Wikipedia Project will come to include KLTI, or at least dovetail with their efforts.
KLTI has some wicked-skilled employees…
Some parts were just fun (and colorful). You could make paper.
Or look at paper/cover art..
There were also (LOL) areas to which I would not go. ^^
All in all, it seemed a better convention/event than last year’s version, so props to the organizers for doing that in an uncertain economy…
