One of my friends found my name mentioned in an article in Forbes China about in-train internet access. Unfortunately, my Chinese reading ability is very limited, but I’m told that it’s a well-written article.
The first paragraph:
Here’s an approximate translation (suggestions for improvement gladly accepted!)
Paul Battley, a young British man travelling from Beijing to Shanghai on the high-speed train, is enjoying a midnight snack in the dining carriage and looking at digital photos on his notebook computer. A stranger asks in English, ‘Do you have a wireless card in that?’ ‘Yes,’ responds Mr Battley. ‘Would you like to try connecting to the internet with your own notebook?’ enquires the stranger. Mr Battley excitedly accepts the invitation.
Thanks to Xiangdian for alerting me.
