Baidu’s $1.9 billion acquisition of app store 91 Wireless this week made me smile, because it solved a Chinese mystery. I’ve always wondered: Why do Chinese Internet giants try to copy the success of other companies, instead of simply buying them out? Tech companies in the U.S. have long been willing to acquire ......

How about Censorship? Censorship is another widely spread out excuse for the failure of the Internet giant. Not true. It is part of the reasons, maybe 10%, but not all.

Let me give you some background information. Almost all US Internet companies failed in China in the last 10 years. Yahoo! entered China by acquiring 3721.com (some argued it was a keyword based search engine that dominated the space before Baidu.com came out), and turned it into nothing, before Yahoo! China was sold......

  Recently, more and more articles appear in party magazines about the topic of "Draw a clear line between Socialism vs Western Democracy" (source). That brought me to some interesting similar cases.    My friend told me when China first started to import movies from abroad, every movie needs a very long......

  The good traffic condition only lasted for few weeks, before it is getting worse. From the slow moving cars on the road, and policemen with flashing police car at every city corner, I got the signal - Expo is no longer a count down number. It is getting real.    People get nervous. There are problems when there ......

  Let me continue the argument regarding my previous blog In Market We Trust here. Intuition    The government decision makers are very likely to make decisions based on intuition, and the planned economy mindset. I, myself, made even more frequent mistakes when I make decisions about the market. I admit that I d......

I know, the recent financial crisis can be used as a way to argue the other way, I am still talking about the relative older style of market (like the flea market, and fish market), not the financial innovation stuff.    H......

  今天的湾区阳光灿烂,280洲际公路两边的绿色山坡和蔚蓝的白云,让人觉得自己是Windows XP桌面上的一个图标。    下午,2点,终于来到Facebook这个神奇的公司。他们的新家在南加利福尼亚街的最里面,一幢两层的楼里。他们刚刚从车位紧张的Palo Alto城里搬到这里,据说一层楼又要搬了。我好像是他们再次搬地方前的最后一批访客。这里,车位依然紧张。Face......

  在一个培训里,我们做了个有趣的游戏。那个游戏是一个囚徒困境的翻版,是为了证明双赢的可能性和重要性的。简化来说,是这样的:    两个人猜拳。    每个人都可以出剪刀或者布。    积分规则如下:    若两人都出剪刀,各得1分;    若两人都出布,各得3分;    若一人剪刀,一人布,剪刀者得5分,布者得0分。    如此往复很多次,积分最多者获......
