Lazy Panda: Lessons in Cultural Localization:

April 10th, 2011

Around March 21st I ventured out of the house to a popular Muslim eatery not far from me and only a minute’s walk from the Yellow River. This particular noodle restaurant has an impressive view of one of the prettier Mosques in Lanzhou. Despite my unease in crowded areas and the fact that virtually everyone […]


Gaining Twitter Influence!:

March 31st, 2011

I sometimes get hooked into reading articles written by social media industry giants who sell you their services via their articles on their giantism on social media. One today guided me to do several things to improve my status.  And I couldn’t help myself: I went to check his Klout ( which is phonetically how […]


Colour’s China Connect:

March 31st, 2011

Colour, new photo-sharing app cloned by China   The dubiously hot social app Color had most of Techcrunch abuzz this week. The app, which launched on Wednesday with $41 million in funding, shares user pictures with anyone else using the app within about 150 feet. The Chinese, not to outdone, have created a reasonable duplicate […]

Spread Hope:

March 17th, 2011

There is an old religious joke that talks about St. Peter leading a group of hard-shell Baptists on a tour of heaven. The whole time they were getting a sanctified tour they could not help but notice a high wall blocking any view to the right of the procession. Finally, one of the followers deigned […]


海归,海带,海鸥 Part I:

March 9th, 2011

China’s narrow definition of educational success abroad Academic and aristocratic people live in such an uncommon atmosphere that common sense can rarely reach them. Samuel Butler “To get into [ China’s #1 University] Tsinghua as an undergraduate, you have to score extremely well on a nationwide test,” Seth Roberts, a U.C. Berkeley professor emeritus of […]


Turning Hashtags into Plowshares:

March 7th, 2011

  There were “Nine Black Categories” during the Cultural Revolution: Landlords, rich farmers, anti-revolutionaries, bad influences (the catch-all available in any culture), right-wingers, traitors, spies, capitalist roaders and lastly, intellectuals—scholars have been last, or next to last in Chinese caste hierarchies since the Yuan dynasty where they were only slightly better regarded: They were ninth in the […]


Many Faces: Education in China:

March 5th, 2011

“There are quantities of human faces, but there are many more faces, for each person has several.” Ranier Maria Rilke I once substituted  as lecturer for a Classics course in a Chinese Ivy League school. The beloved Harvard educated Chinese professor could not teach that term because of medical issues.  I entered the classroom as […]


I See You:

February 9th, 2011

Our common lexicon is often changed by movies, televison shows, advertising, and oral transmission in person or over digital, analog or snail mail networks. “Unfriend” was Oxford’s word of the year for 2009 as it had, despite its psycholinguistic negativity, “lex-appeal” been passed on by social medians around the world. “Believe it or Not,” “Come […]


The Crock Theory:

February 5th, 2011

The Elucidation of the Parlous Panjandrum or The Crock Theory by Dr. Dave Garber One might begin by asking, “What is a Parlous Panjandrum?”  (parlous being synonymous with dangerous and panjandrum being a high muck amuck.  One might describe a person holding high office in a bureaucracy as a Parlous Panjandrum if the person’s behavior […]
