Tech trend mapping between us and china, inspired by kpcb internet report 2012

  1. 1. Tech Trend Mapping between US and China, Inspired by KPCB’s Internet Report 2012I loved KPCB’s vivid “Re-imagination” by visual contrasts between “Then” and “Now”So began my random thoughts on parallel mapping between “Now” and “China Now”Selected 28 “Now” from KPCB report as my mapping benchmarkMy summary of the mapping: needless to say, inveterate copy phenomenon in ChinaBurning puzzle: is copy really bad?Answer: if I cannot be creative or inventive , at least I shall do “smart copy” or “optimized copy” Not every concept is feasible in China due to the differences of culture, online behaviors, legality etcSome areas already have dominant players, while some are still pending for fierce competitionGuess my slides were copying KPCB as well…but still I tried to do sth more hereIf you happen to see my slides, thanks for your precious time and attention.I am sure I would make some errors in my slides, please do point them out . Your genuine criticism will be my improvement. 1
