Henry Petroski explains his experience at Tech Plus Forum 2009, which was held in Seoul, South Korea, December 2009. An innovative forum in Seoul seeks a brighter stage for South Korean technology. Tech+ Forum, as the meeting's name seemed most often to be written, was organized by the major Korean media conglomerate JoongAng IIbo. This company produces an English-language newspaper, the JoongAng Daily, which is inserted into Korean editions of the newspaper of its publishing partner, the International Herald Tribune, whose masthead in turn identifies itself as the global edition of the New York Times. After all the seats were taken, the room darkened and what sounded like rock-concert music blared from large speakers located throughout the hail. The normal arrangement for non-plenary sessions was to have all the speakers and the session moderator sitting in armchairs on stage throughout the session.
