The difficult path to revive Sony Corp.

Below is my comment on the article of "Out of the Shadows Page 18 Time, March 21, 2005".

Howard Stringer might be a capable and brilliant CEO. But it is a wishful thinking for Sony that he could solve the core of the problems she faces now.

The point is that the future of Sony Corp. depends not on the appointment of a foreign boss but on whether all of her directors and employees could regain the spirit of craftsmanship that Mr.Morita, the founder of this global enterprise, had the other day enthusiastically to satisfy his cool customers as well as his strong curiosity to technology.

I believe they can have a chance to revive the company because the sound of “Sony” is still alive in the hearts of many customers as the symbol of superb Japanese technological gadgets.

How to end poverty

Below is my comment on the aritcle "The End of Poverty" of Time magazine, March 14, 2005

Your article about the poverty in Africa knocked me on the head because of the nature of this tragedy.

The sudden natural disasters like an earthquake off Sumatra and the following massive tsunami could mobilize a large number of people and money for a short period of time. On the contrary, a slow but a massive wave of poverty and death in Africa is often very difficult to attract world’s attention.

We should not count the number of the dead like eight million each year in Africa and 290,000 off Sumatra when we try to do something good for the people devastated by those disasters. The life of one person weighs the heaviest for his family and those who loved him/her.

I myself can’t do anything for the African people but try to support Jeffery D. Sachs’ efforts for them.

Emerging as non-neglect existence

My comment on the article "Power to the Center" of Time magazine reported by Nicle Qu and Jodi Xu on March 14, 2005.

Whether you like it or not, China is increasingly emerging as the biggest testsite of the power game between a handful of leaders and people, politics and economy, urban and rural and harmony and unrest for the rest of Asia and the world.
