Attrition: South Korea Counts Its Cyber War Losses

Attrition: South Korea Counts Its Cyber War Losses | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
October 23, 2013: South Korea has come up with a number (over $800 million) for the cost of dealing with North Korean cyber attacks over the past four years The list the government complied is quite detailed The latest attacks (in March and June)...
Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway: This is a very interesting article on the history of computer hacking from within North Korea.  It also discusses how South Korea's dependency on the internet makes them a perfect test sample for North Korea to learn how to hack the rest of the world.   My thoughts are that they can try things in South Korea (same time zone) and then impliment attacks while other parts of the world are sleeping.

South Korea issues alert after government websites shut down - NOTE: NOT CONFIRMED

South Korea issues alert after government websites shut down - NOTE: NOT CONFIRMED | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
South Korea has issued a cyberattack alert after government websites shut down on the anniversary of the start of the Korean War.
Ken Morrison's insight:

These claims happen often and there is no way of confirming it at this point.  I am sharing this more as a reminder that S. Korea has been attacked two times this year by some organization.  It is becoming scary. S. Korea does not have many natural resources, so they 'bank' on technology and international trade agreements.  Any slowing down or shutting down of the computer systems is a big deal.

South Korea’s surprising stand-down on digital textbooks

South Korea has for years equated the advance of technology with societal progress, including in the area of education. Not now.
Ken Morrison's insight:

I am sharing this because it talks about a balance that the Korean government is trying to find between leading the way in digital textbooks and paper in a country where 1 in 5 of students between 5 - 9 year old students are addicted to the Internet.

Will you help me? -- Ken's Research Project (12-question online survey)

Will you help me?  -- Ken's Research Project (12-question online survey) | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Ken Morrison's insight:

I will keep this low-pressure favor request short.

Thank you to those who have both followed my Scoop.it topic and (more importantly) helped me learn.

Would you be willing to share this online survey with any online networks of Korean students that you may belong to? Feel free to also share it with Korean students who may be willing to share it with their networks. I am comparing how Korean students use smartphone technology in Korea compared to how Korean students use it while studying abroad. I made it short and easy (12 questions). If you are comfortable sharing, you can just copy/paste below the line. Otherwise, just click around for other great content from the Scoop.it community

Thanks for considering it.

Onward...

Students, will you help me?

I made an easy & short 12-question survey to help me with a research project. If you are an international student living in Korea or a Korean-born student of any age (or any country), I would appreciate your answers.

Thank you for your support.

Ken

Korea continues to invest in free public wi-fi locations.

Korea continues to invest in free public wi-fi locations. | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

The Korean Government will increase the number of free public wifi locations from 2,000 to 12,000 by 2017

Ken Morrison's insight:

I am happy to live in the most digitally connected country in the world. I was surprised that they will become 6x more connected (via measuring free wi-fi at public locations in the next four years.

I am certain that this will also help LG and Samsung. The Korean Education system is also transitioning into mass diital textbook integration. Thus having more wifi may aid with the transition to these portable devices.

This is a well-written article that documents the growth of on-line shopping in Korea and puts it in context.  The part about the woman shopping instead of watching the presidential debate which produced the country's first female president put things in context.  After four years here, I agree that constant shopping is a huge deal.  I feel that the busy shopping malls and poor parking conditions adds to the convenience of online shopping.

Duncan Calls For Textbooks To Become Obsolete | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

They reference S. Korea a few times. They need to be careful in thinking that what works in one system will work in another.  With that said, I am a fan of the potential of being able to update textbooks much more quickly and customize them for your lessons.  I also like the idea of parents being able to download the same book as the students.
