The airports in Japan and Korea are ridiculously far away from the city. I would just like to point that out because I spent around 3 hours in a car today going to and from airports. Bleh. What was even worse is that because of this, I had to wake up at 5:45 to head to the airport. During the flight, Kirill and I worked on his presentation for the Korean BDM Summit and press event so there was no sleeping on the flight either. Thankfully Steve Goh, the APAC sales director for management picked us up form the airport so it was very painless for us to get to the hotel.
After freshening up, we headed to the Microsoft Korea office for a series of internal, customer, and partner meetings. It was very interesting to learn about the Korean market. Some interesting notes:
Other things to note:
Tomorrow is going to be a super long day. Hopefully I'll have some pictures and time to post, but we'll be heading to Sydney after a day of presentations and meetings.
