    [TIME] S3-3: The Office on the Move, Boundless Office -- by Jaehyun Park (CTO, ThinkFree) [slides]

    This year, over 75 million office files were created by over 4 00 million use r s of office productivity s uites . Most office s uite s oftware such as MS Office, Open Office, and Cor e l Office are tightly coupled with the underlying desktop operating system. However, as web technologies such as Java, Ajax, and Flex progress, it is possible to develop the same rich desktop experience on the web. In fact, Google Docs & Spreadsheet , ThinkFree Online, and Zoho Office are currently providing features beyond a traditional desktop office suite . Recent advances in mobile technology such as Google's Android, Qualcomm's Snapdragon and Intel's Moblin project are forming a strong foundation for the eventual move of o ffice software into the mobile environment . A seamless integration between the web , desktop and mobile office environments is essential. User s demand the same experience and service any time, anywhere -- a boundless office . The basic requirements of a boundless office are:
    - User s must receive the same office experience whether they are on the web , desktop or mobile platforms .
    - User s have access to the ir d ata on the web , desktop and mobile devices .
    - Users are productive regardless of the network status (offline or online).
    This is an analysis of the current and future web / mobile office technology.

    [TIME] S3-4: Future Widget on the Mobile -- by Charles Pyo (CEO, Wizard Works Inc. ) [slides]

    Widget is not an entirely new concept. For the past ten years, we have been obtaining various types of information from banners that occupy one corner of websites. Although they used to be mostly advertisements, in the age of Web 2.0, banners no longer only show us one-sided advertisements. Banners as widgets have now been transformed into an outstanding content providing medium that give us practical "information," one that provides customized information that suits me perfectly. They not only fulfill their function by being attached to websites, but now are also being readied to be linked to desktop, mobile, and even IPTV. Widgets now come to us not merely as more developed banners but rather as a completely new medium. Widgets are not restricted by display size, and do not distinguish between wire and wireless. If one can only connect to the web, anyone can obtain the same information from anywhere. It also has the advantage of information change that is made from any one place being synchronized in real time in many other devices. Truly, a new change in the ubiquitous age content distribution has begun. However, in order for this "change" to become a "revolution," there is sadly still a long and difficult road ahead. Different widget engines are separately struggling to increase their own power, and the work of standardization is very much lagging behind. Just as the numerous mobile content companies did when they built applications for feature phones for a long time, the widget content providers are repeating the same work over and over again in order to optimize their content on each of the different widget engines. Could we not solve these problems today and begin a new age? I believe in the abilities of those of us gathered here.

    Blogging has been a great means of personal content publishing on the web. Some bloggers even established themselves as influential media. However, one area that's not been addressed very well by blogs is perhaps the networking across bloggers as media content generators.

Though "mobile blogging" per se will not be the focus of the talk, we will also attempt to "touch" on the issue towards the end of the talk.
