There Are Chinese, Then There Are Chinese

For many westerners and western companies, it’s hard to figure out why some Chinese have gone to the US for their graduate degrees, worked at name technology companies such as Intel and Microsoft, then come back to China, their homeland, start their own businesses, and fall flat on their faces. How is this possible? They [...]

More on Microsoft!

Information Arbitrage has an excellent article on how the different cultures at Microsoft and Yahoo! would have trouble coming together; he compares it to the difference between football players and baseball players. This is one of those soft things which the number crunchers and bean counters usually miss, but invariably hits the outcome of a [...]

Why Google Loves Microsoft-Yahoo On So Many Levels

The quality and amount of discourse on the proposed takeover of Yahoo! by Microsoft has had my bullshit meter jumping off the charts, and I felt I just had to chime in. Paul Kedrosky summed it up best when he said that it would benefit Google the most. Anyone with half a brain and who [...]

Chinese-Language Search Grows, and the Mobile Internet…

Everything else being equal, it is safe to assume that human language-specific search should closely map to populations. For example, the US population is 300M, Canada’s is about 30M, the UK is about 60M, and Australia is about 15M and New Zealand is about 4M. These are the main English-speaking populations, and they total about [...]

I don’t believe that the Chinese success can be fully ascribed to China’s rising wealth and development; a good deal also has to deal with how western countries have screwed up in their politics and [...]

Chinese Face, Chinese Heart Part I

One of the frequent questions I run into in China is how western Internet companies coming into China should position themselves for growth in China. Should they try to be western, or should they try in the shortest possible time, try to become Chinese, hiring Chinese for their local staff and management? Under what circumstances [...]

Back To The Mac!

It has been some time since I last posted an article, so I thought I better give you a pretty good excuse. Long story short: I have said goodbye to my old Windows (Averatec) laptop, and have bought and am using a brand new MacBook Pro 2.4G 2/250 15″ laptop running OS X (Leopard), which [...]

In Business, Becoming Fearless Is What Makes You Great

For most of my career, I have been looking for patterns to discover why some companies come out of nowhere and become big and great, and why others who have dominated the market lose market share and users to the newcomers. More often than not, the newcomers are entrepreneurs who had a vision, while the [...]

Developing Games and Living the American Dream In China

Last night I had dinner with five individuals in Beijing. Except for me, all of them had real hands-on experience in the gaming industry in China. (My experience in gaming is limited to the business side; not programming and production.) All of them were Americans, or had extensive experience in the US. Long story short: [...]
