Post by johnkarls »

Originally proposed by johnkarls » Tue Aug 27, 2019 6:03 am – 51 views in Sec. 3 before being transplanted here


I propose that we read “Tech Titans Of China: How China’s Tech Sector Is Challenging The World By Innovating Faster, Working Harder and Going Global" by Rebecca A. Fannin (Nicholas Brealey Publishing – to be released 9/3/2019 – 256 pages - $22.49 + shipping or $13.99 Kindle from Amazon.com, or as low as $17.17 (new) + $3.99 shipping from independent vendors listed on Amazon.com).

The monthly bulletin for September of the Harvard Club of NYC arrived by e-mail yesterday (Aug 26) and, among the zillions of events, listed a presentation by Rebecca Fannin on her new book for 12:00 noon on Sep 18 (if you are not a member of the club, I can register you for this event).

The listing in the Harvard Club of NYC Bulletin --

When history is told, May 2019 will mark the beginning of the U.S.-China tech cold war, as the U.S. moved to block Huawei. Over the past two decades, China’s Silicon Valley has evolved from copiers, to originators, to a potentially dominant worldwide tech leader. China has scale, innovation, speed of execution, and determination to rejuvenate their great country with disruptive breakthroughs not seen since the Industrial Revolution. Rebecca Fannin will introduce us to the Tech Titans, and set out what are the most important things to understand about the tech environment in China today, in her very timely book.

Rebecca A. Fannin is a leading expert on global innovation and the founder of Silicon Dragon Ventures, a media and events platform serving tech innovation and investment forums in key global hubs. Fannin began her career in Silicon Valley and was one of the first American journalists to write about China’s entrepreneurial boom. Her articles have appeared in Harvard Business Review, Fast Company and many others. Today, Rebecca pens a weekly column for Forbes and is a special correspondent for CNBC.com.
