"If you give voice to the common people, they will share their ideas generally. Much more knowledge exists in Open Source... Children are not a sink of resources, but a source of innovation.

There is a saying that You can count the seeds in an apple, but you cannot count the apples in a seed. We're hoping to build tens of millions of apples in the future.
~Ambassador HAHN Choong-hee, Deputy Permanent Representative of the Republic of Korea to the UN in New York.
