Long time no see, forum!
It’s Ayden Lee again, with some updates regarding MaidSafe Korea.
I had to fly to New York to see my old friend from junior high, who happens to be the president of a computer science /international business club in the top engineering school in Korea. I presented the concept and basic ideas of MaidSafe to his team, and it went really well. His club, not to mention himself, is pretty influencial among Korean college engineering students and clubs, so I’m expecting him to be a huge help, once MaidSafe Korea gets practical.
Our graphic designer came up with a first draft of a the Korean version logo with a little animation built into it, which is going to be in the Korean version of the introduction video. Basic ideas and plots are all set up, and we have all the talented members we need in filming the actual video.
Vast majority of our team members are going through heavy work loads from school(Midterms are coming up soon), so the actuqal production of the video will happen in next week at the fastest.
we also found a small Korean company which makes really cheap and small computers(starts with $65, size of a cigarette box, operates like a normal desktop). We saw some potentials in mounting SAFE OS, and we’re paying close attentions to the company.
Some notable concerns though:
Though most of the projects are going really well, the team is experiencing some difficulties; and the biggest one is gathering useful information. David and I are pretty much the only people who are actually fluent in English, and even I am a bit too foreign to read a lot of articles and pull out useful information, resulting in David being the only one doing the research job. He mentioned that getting some filtered options of information would be a huge help for him.
Today we only have some rough and general questions, but soon they will get highly practical; so give us some time
As David mentioned, is there a specific place you guys gather informations regarding MaidSafe outside of this forum? if not, are there any people willing to help David gathering useful information?
We’re trying to get a couple of engineering students to get interested into this project, and it seemed to be easier to convince them by using highly technical approach so it would be ‘challenging’ enough for them to be interested in. We decided introducing mining (farming) concept to them. We completely understand the concept, but we couldn’t explain anything in in-depth level or show anything. Where should we go to get specific information regarding mining(farming)? This is one of the most urgent problems for us, as we have no engineering-related members in our team.
We had some troubles figuring out the font of the “MaidSafe” logo. We figured it would be better for a Korean logo to be consistant with the actual logo. Could we know what font the logo is?
I’ve been explaining the concept of MaidSafe to MANY people, and I became curious if I’m doing okay in explaining MaidSafe. How do you guys usually explain this to people around you?
Above were all the urgent questions and updates we had so far, and I’m glad to let you guys know that Project: MaidSafeKorea is going really well.
Have a good day and see you later.
