Drinking the "Hub" Kool-aidThere is a big shindig people involved in licensing in Seoul in April, specifically the annual meeting for the Licensing Executives Society. I still may go to this, I don't know as of yet. Meanwhile Kim Sun-ryung, one of the organizers, achieves the amazing feat in the Korea Herald of writing 903 words about the conference while avoiding giving any constructive reason to go. In any case writing skills are not why I bring this out. What attracted my eye was Mr. Kim's gratuitous use of the "Hub" myth:
It seems most timely and appropriate that Seoul is the next venue for the [Licensing Executives Society] Conference as it is regarded as the hub of northeast Asia.
