It’s a lot to ask, but I’m asking you all to read this piece. Considering one in six of your brothers and sisters on this planet live in China, it’s worth taking some time out of your day to get to know who they are and where they come from. This Fast Company article is the most interesting take on China I’ve ever come across, and although many of my geek friends would glance at this and think TLDR, I’m still suggesting you read it. Trust.
At the beginning of 2011, Fast Company set out to spend a year in China, documenting the transition, transformation and innovation in that country. Our reporters spent time with people from many sectors of Chinese life, and what our team emerged with was a picture of China that is far more complex than we expected, a portrait of a nation that is complicated and searching collectively for its future.
