Lee and Sachi Lefever have been travelling the world and documenting it on their excellent site, The World Is Not Flat. (Disclosure, I had a hand in helping setting up the site, and it's hosted by my employer, Bryght, for which I do technical support.) As a guilty admission, I've only recently started following the site, mainly because early on I subscribed to their 'china' tag and only now are they writing extensively about their travels there.
Robert Scales and my coworker Kris Krug (of Raincity Studios and Bryght respectively) are headed to China soon. Of course, as somewhat of an expert on China (see my 'china' tag, which gets syndicated over at Watching China), I'm jealous that they're going without me, but I'm excited for them as well.
After suffering through some sluggishness, Just a Gwai Lo should be a little faster now that I've applied a patch that improves path alias performance in Drupal 4.6. This improvement is already part of 4.7, but I'm putting off upgrading until all the modules—including the custom modules I wrote—are all updated at least iin CVS.
Jared Kim after talking about the tech startup he created last year in China: “China is making companies play ball by the local rules, and if those companies don't like those rules they can find another court because there are many other players willing to take their place. Foreign companies don't have a gambling chip in this particular situation. Google/Yahoo not censoring search results?
