Appearance on YTN Science "Docu S Prime"

I was interviewed about the wearable computer and the tablet PC that I developed about two decades ago by the crew of YTN Science last month. The result of that made into the most recent episode of the science documentary series "Docu S Prime" which aired yesterday, March 10, 2022. It was quite flattering to see those devices being introduced as "over-technologies" together with the self driving car from 1990s.

Thanks to an SBS show last year, I was invited to appear on the popular cable television program "You Quiz", and that episode aired yesterday. I liked the way it turned out, and it seems that a lot of people enjoyed it as well, especially the parts involving my wife.

Appearance on SBS "What on Earth" episode #1104


[Source page at SBS website]

The weekly SBS TV program "What on Earth" (순간포착 세상에 이런일이) is one of the longest-running show on the network, going back to 1998. I made an appearance on episode #187 on Feburary 28, 2002 as the "computer man" that wore the "wearable computer" around the city. The show has recently been going back to the archives to highlight the notable old episodes and they wanted to show how I was doing these days. The newspaper article from 10 years ago made the cut, but not more recent stuff, probably due to time constraint. Still, it was a good opportunity to let people know I'm still out there, alive and well.

P.S. There are now a couple of news articles on my appearance online.

2020-10-16 Update: SBS Noriter and another news outlet have reported as well.
