This week I got to go to Guangzhou and stay in the Four Points Sheraton because my employer took pity on us and wanted to make up for the poor reception and tough experiences we’ve had. So I got to see a lot of news in English — CNN, BBC, and CCTV-9. I saw a lot of coverage of Steve Job’s life, which has made people think a lot about contribution, success, failure, perfectionism, creativity and innovation. Apple will go on and continue to make more products. I don’t think that’s the big story. I think the bigger story is how people connect with beauty and vision. Steve sought to push the envelope and not just make new products that did things differently, he had a strong belief that his products should be beautiful and he was able to communicate his vision in an infectious manner. He’s an example for how to push for more than just the minimum.
I also saw complete disaster and more chaos at school. I just wish people would tell us that there’s going to be construction work and the noise that goes with it, rather than surprising us.
Rumor has it that the room should be ready for teaching by Tuesday morning when we need it. Hmm. I’ve heard so many rumors here.
