Another Brick in the Wall: Link Edition XXVI

Another cornucopia of links, mostly China-related.  I wonder if encryption usage will become more prevalent by companies and individuals?  Maybe not though because it can be complex and cumbersome to use… although as David Veksler has mentioned, it is good “best practices” to prevent proprietary information from leaking at your company by utilizing encryption.  Perhaps services like Silent Circle will become more popular as time goes by?

A smorgasbord of China-related links.  Xi and Obama are meeting out in Sunnylands right now (good VF article covering Sunnylands last year).  I wonder if Xi’s wife (Peng Liyuan) will dump her iPhone now that Apple is allegedly part of the NSA PRISM program.  Thanks to Sinocism for several of the links.

Despite the political issues and bilateral hacking, there is an ever growing amount of trade between the US and China.  This is great — win/win.  See the Bastiat link at the end for why.  Thanks to Sinocism for some of the links.

Big mix of links today.  Certainly wouldn’t want to be a new college grad in China without awesome guanxi.

Anecdotatly it is hard to say what direction luxury is heading since it is such a large segment now.  Government crackdown on big Party dinners still in effect, not sure if government officials want to be made an example of (including receiving traditional gifts like watches).

Another relatively slow news week.  Big skillset mismatch with new college grads, sympathize with (unemployed) former students at the colleges I taught at.  Thanks to Xiao for a couple links.

Bitcoin community in China

Got an email last night from an expat in China asking if there were any domestic BTC exchanges.

My response was that the largest one is BTCChina — but if you’re on the mainland you cannot access the site unless you have a VPN.

There are also a few Chinese-language BTC community sites, like Bitecoin and Bitcoin talk forum, but again you also need a VPN to access them.

A few news stories that I bumped into during the day:
