More on China

Baidu.com which is the largest search engine in China (and essentially, well, soon, the world). Baidu is going IPO sometime soon so a lot of folks are very excited about Baidu. I also met with folks at Student Times, which is an English language children’s newspaper that is spreading like wildfire across the country. As I mentioned last year in China, the desire to speak English is huge amongst the young, and a newspaper like this is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this growing market. I also met the game folks at Sohu.com and the founder of Dudu.com and Mop.com. Mop.com has a radio station which I’ve already added to the PenguinRadio database. Our last meeting was with the folks seeking to bring the xbox to China, which, believe it or not, is a real bear. Not only is their the price issue, but there are a lot of government regulations on console games being brought into the country. The actual Xbox device has not been approved for sale because of the influence it has on people. ]]>
