Formerly having been a professor of communication, Minha is specialized in news and social network theories. She founded A POCO in 2015, modeling humanistic IT to advocate human’s creative knowledge and free will to deal with the seemingly robot-dominant shift of tech paradigm. Now, focusing more on humanistic network, she founded GLEENET LLC in Seattle and has geared towards buiding a core identity of the company. OMNIBUS and Blue Carpet will be the company’s first step for the sake of humanistic SNS.
