Wikimedia Movement in Korea

I am going to travel Hong Kong next week for WIkimania 2013 Hong Kong. I hope I could attend a few chapters congregations. Also I am looking forward meeting WikiTech hackers. This trip is sponsored by Wikimedia Foundation which seeking the broadening of horizons across the country borders. The movement in Korea is still in conception. If the activists in Korea could work hard to complete the persuasion for the officials who will permit the founding an NGO.

But as an engineer I love to attend hacker's meeting. I like to participate the workshop for mobile devices. Maybe I will be a member of the team. Mobile app developers in Korea is pretty prevail. I will seek more opportunities to contribute for the movement.

Peter Hessler had gone to Egypt with his family

I reviewed my blogs which I had stopped just for 2 years. Actually I was not so keen about writing even before the break. I found a posting about Peter Hessler, The New Yorker correspondent in Beijing. I clicked a link to Wikipedia articles in the post. I found that he moved Cairo with his Chinese-American wife. He was sent by The New Yorker after recent revolution of Egypt. He is exploring the world again, now the another ancient world Egypt after China. I'd like to feel to read his recent books such as driving southern part of China.

North Koreans

Yesterday, I met a few missionaries leaving Korea for Ulaanbaatar Mongolia, Yanbian China, Inner Mongolia China. In addition to those missionaries, I met a layman who works for the mission in the North Korea. His parents fleed from North before Korean War. His grandfather was a pastor in Wonsan but killed by communists. I heard in border area of China and North Korea, some of North Korean elites are converted and they are trying to preach the good news to North Korea. We know Christians in North Korea are severely prosecuted even to death. I saw a video clip a woman vowed to mission in North Korea. I thought it's same to the vow of Communists in the voice. She was confident and aggressive. I don't know how God will free the people in the North. The wall is high and the control of the regime is tight. Could she reach to Pyeongyang successfully with her mission. She could stick on her heavenly mission? I don't know. I'm not sure. I want just just weep in a silent place. I want to ask Him in tears. Why? What do you want for this tragedy of contrast, the one of most prosperous countries and the most wretched country in the world. We were all Koreans. They are living where my fore fathers were. They are sisters and brothers shared same blood of mine. I want to ask Him, why?
