Journalists In China…

It’s great reading Dan’s blogs from China. I recently spent a couple of weeks there with customers, media, and analysts. The comments here are really worth a read – especially those from his students.

Couple of observations from my last trip.

1. plenty of women tech journalists – much more than I encounter in the US. And, much like here, no discernible difference in aggressiveness or style. They all want a story and they want it before their competitors.

2. all the journalists are savvy to the big issues and don’t shy from the tough questions.

3. they have a keen sense of history – much more so than in the US. It feels like they are doing much deeper research – and they constantly refer back to notes from the last interview…

4. they’re quick to give competitors a call prior to any interview… a couple were armed with the same set of questions from the same competitor.

Like Dan I found the broadband in China a tad slow – but free, as it is in most places, is great. Moreover, wireless coverage is fantastic and high-quality. Much better than in Silicon Valley. Was also cool to step off the plane and have email flooding into my Blackberry. So, we’re one-all in this respect.
