IamA Canadian living in Korea who founded the country's first western-style geek convention. AMA!
My short bio: My name is Jordan VanHartingsveldt. I moved to South Korea in 2011 to teach English to pay off my student loans. In 2013, I - along with a group of friends - started a small convention in our city, calling it Alleycon after its birthplace (a foreign restaurant named The First Alleyway). The first year saw 60 participants and the following year 240 participants. This year, we're expecting 500 people to come from across the country. You can find out more at www.alleycon.com.
