The Valley – great short on Silicon Valley and entrepreneurship by @seanchoe

An all-around good guy working in IT here in Korea, Sean Choe, put this together while on a quick tour of the States. One of the really great messages is from the guy at Rock You, Jia Shen. He talks about building respect by creating and running a good business rather than working for a big, established company. He seems to be speaking directly to the Korean experience. The fact that you don’t have to work for the big guys (Samsung, Naver, etc.) to be considered a success is so foreign to many in Korea (particularly parents).

I think I’ll show this to my students and get their feedback on the messages. Many of them are at a point in their lives and a point in Korean history when being entrepreneurs is looking like a good option.
