    China’s research culture “wastes resources, corrupts the spirit, and stymies innovation,” the School of Life Sciences deans at China’s top two universities wrote in a scathing September 2010 editorial in Science magazine.
    Note: Really?

    China now has more than one million US-dollar millionaires and some 270 US-dollar billionaires.
    Note: Wow. So a million CNY means nothing...
  • Julien shared from NO ANCIENT WISDOM, NO FOLLOWERS: The Challenges of Chinese Authoritarian Capitalism by James McGregor
    This publication provides a fair but critical examination of Chinese authoritarian capitalism—a system in size and structure that is unique and unlike anything the world has seen.
    Note: State owned enterprises have an enormous size nobody has ever seen.

    When people ask Biz about his wealth, he tells them that money rarely changes people; it often just magnifies who they really are.

    The new office, Dick explained, meant that it was time for Twitter to grow up as a company. To end the rolling site outages and a long list of other problems that had plagued Twitter’s infancy. “We’re leaving the motto of making better mistakes tomorrow in the old building,” Dick said. “That’s not the type of company we are anymore.”
    Note: The startup is now a true corporate

    Dick and Ali Rowghani also started shutting down third-party feeds to ensure that competitors, including Bill Gross, couldn’t siphon people away from Twitter to a competing network.

    There had been meetings over the previous few weeks with the White House, the State Department, the San Francisco mayor’s office, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office, and the Russian embassy to play through the meticulously planned visit. The plan: After the Russian president sent his first tweet, the White House would retweet it. Barack Obama would reply, congratulating him on his tweet, as would the mayor and governor, all welcoming the Russian president to Twitter and to the United States.
    Note: Tweet at about 8:20 pm

    But instead Oprah pressed the caps-lock button first, then began typing: “HI TWITTERS. THANK YOU FOR A WARM WELCOME. FEELING REALLY 21ST CENTURY.” Then, rather than hit “send” on Twitter, she accidentally pressed the key with the yellow piece of tape on it. This reset the screen and erased her first tweet. Cut to commercial. Oprah hadn’t actually tweeted. Ev saw this and his throat tightened; he quickly pushed Oprah aside and grabbed the keyboard, frantically typing the same exact tweet in all caps and hitting “send,” his heart pounding as he heard the cameraman yell: “And we’re...
    Note: So Oprah's first tweet was tweeted by Ev.

    The live-television plan had been meticulously set in place. Oprah would write a tweet, then send it; the show would cut to commercial. As advertisements filled the screen, Oprah was then instructed to “press the button on the keyboard with a yellow sticker” which would load tweets from all her friends, including George Stephanopoulos, Ellen DeGeneres, Shaquille O’Neal, Demi Moore, and others, who had all been told by producers to reply to Oprah, welcoming her to the site.

    To ensure everything worked live on national television, Twitter engineers decide to create the Oprah Server: a computer server completely dedicated to Oprah, her own special Twitter, which would guarantee that even if the site went down during the live-television extravaganza, Oprah’s account would not.
    Note: mainstream treat, a dedicate server.
