Flying to Puket

I am at Pudong airport and get ready to fly to Puket – my first trip to Thailand, and one of the few trips to southeast Asia. Still Available

I sent an email to, my old email at Microsoft.

Can you receive this mail?

This was my email alias many years ago.

Jian Shuo Wang

Very soon, I got mail like this:

Bingo! My email address is still not occupied by someone else. Just for the record, I checked just because we were at a Microsoft gather, and some conversation inspired my curiosity.


Started to Use MarsEdit

After switching to WordPress from MovableType, and after switching from Windows to Mac, I need to find some software to blog on my laptop. Here is MarsEdit. I saw some good comments from Quora on it, and here you are. This is the first post from the client.

Knowledge vs Resources from Friends

Mr. Systrom, now 29, offered this as a parable for the roomful of would-be entrepreneurs who came to hear him talk at Stanford last spring: in the intensely competitive start-up scene here, success is as much about who you know as what you know. “Make sure to spend some time after the talk getting to know the people around you,” he told his audience.

 He is right in both China and US. But in the valley, although people provide connections, most people provide knowledge and advice, just as Adam D’Anglo did for Instagram, but in China, people generally expect resources.
