China’s Comeuppance

After years of reading articles in magazines like Business Week and others about China’s counterfeiting, it was with amusement that I read an article today that starts out like this:

The five-volume “Executive Ability” book series is a classic in Chinese business and management circles. Collectively, it has sold more than 2 million copies in the last two years. Top universities and public libraries in China keep multiple copies on hand.  It’s also a big fake.

You can read today’s article in the LA Times yourself here.

So this country that is knocking off everything they can (Windows OS, furniture, cars, pharmaceuticals and more) is now relying on fake business advice.

Serves ’em right.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
