Kai-Fu Lee, 李開復, spoke to over 280 people at the Google Crittenden campus today.  He spent two hours talking and answering questions about what Google China is doing. 

 Some highlights:

  • Google strategy in China:  5,000 years–patience; humility– understand the users, Chinese internet user behaviors are different those in the US; build local expertise; advertising based business model
  • China might be more advance in development and application of cloud computing because of software/media piracy
  • Google creating Chinese specific tools, e.g. Google Chinese input IME that uses search results and latest search data to improve selection of Chinese words with same sound
  • KFL’s advice to those who want to do a startup:  be hungry, i.e. you’ve no safe alternatives and it’s live or die.
  • He mentioned his blog
