"The Sting of Death"


Motorola announced that its CEO, Ed Zander, would leave on January 1st. This is the man who said to my question at a press conference, “I don’t know what you are referring to.” I asked for his response to Nokia CEO’s comment that Nokia was not a mere phone maker and he did not consider Motorola as a competitor. I had found this comment in an article of the Economist.

When I was reading “Crime and Punishment,” I thought about visiting St. Petersburg and Moscow. And suddenly Burma. And remembering my happy days in Taiwan, my interest in the Chinese language and its traditional characters is now growing… I like to understand what A-Mei sings about. My mind can be so simply influenced…

I have been largely autodidactic, as in the case of my English learning. For Chinese, I can probably combine the pinyin system, which is a creation of the communist China, and traditional characters.
