About the keynote speaker

Since developing Hangul Processor 3, considered to be the first Korean word processing software in 1983, Mr. Kang has worked for many software companies, most of them his own creations. In 1999, he moved to Silicon Valley and co-founded ThinkFree with the mission of delivering desktop software as a free Internet service. In a 2001 magazine interview, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer mentioned ThinkFree as a potential threat to his company, second only to Linux. In 2006, PC World awarded ThinkFree the World Class award. The following year, ComputerWorld selected ThinkFree as the best online office over Google Docs and Time magazine named it one of the 50 best websites of the year.

Mr. Kang has been profiled in Fortune magazine, appeared on ABC News Ahead of the Curve, presented at numerous conferences around the world. He was one of twenty “Web 2.0 Heroes” Bradley Jones interviewed for the 2008 book by the same title. He received an M.A. degree in cognitive psychology and a B.Sc. degree in psychology with a minor in computer science from the University of Toronto. He is a published author of two books of essays. Mr. Kang served on the Unicode technical committee and represented Korea at international standardization meetings on character encoding.

He was instrumental in including full Korean language support in the Unicode character encoding scheme used by computers around the world. For his contributions to the computerization of the Korean language and to the Korean software industry, he received commendations from the Prime Minister of Korea in 1989 and 2006. Leaving behind 25 years of life in start-ups, Mr. Kang went on to serve as the head of the Service Incubation Office at Korea Telecom before joining Samsung in 2010 to lead the company's media service business.
