Very enjoyable evening with James Fallows. In his new book, he is using the growth of the airline industry in China as an example of the issues involved in the growth of high tech enterprises in China.
He is an extremely knowledgeable and articulate speaker, and I enjoyed his comments and the Q&A session that followed. Simply wish that it was all longer. It was about one hour.
