Taiwan: How to Reboot the Dragon Morris Chang is living proof of Taiwan's ability to transform its economy. In 1985, the China-born Chang, once a long-serving executive at Texas Instruments in the U.S., was lured to Taiwan by the government as part of its effort to develop a high-tech industry. He was hired to manage a state-funded research institute, but shortly after his arrival, an influential technocrat, Li Kuo-ting, called Chang to his office and told him: "Think about how you want to start a company."

Taiwan Today Executive Yuan set to promote e-book industry Publication Date: 07/08/2009 Source: Economic Daily News The government is devising an action plan to promote the electronic book industry, which will begin with the digitalization of textbooks and library documents. Reports said relevant businesses in Taiwan intend to jointly set up a large company like Amazon as a digital publishing platform, and to seek funding from the National Development Fund to help expand the market. Under the government’s initiative, the Government Information Office will propose a subsidy plan to help develop the e-book publishing industry. The e-book business is included in the Executive Yuan’s plan for promoting the cultural and creative industry, one of the “six emerging industries” the government intends to foster for the good of Taiwan’s economic future. According to reports, more and more domestic companies are investing in the development of e-readers.

Project Gutenberg Australia The Reign of a Great Publisher The term ''publisher,'' as used in the news business, is unique. Its equivalents elsewhere, chief executive officer or chairman, do not bear the same weight or convey the same authority. A publisher has the responsibility of a skipper on the bridge of a vessel, mindful always of the rigging, the weather, the course, the morale below decks and, not least, the safe delivery of the cargo, the news, good and bad. The news business has its own amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which gives the cargo a special value and the skipper a special duty. All publishers pay attention to the black ink at the end of the fiscal year, or they will not publish for long. Aspiring publishers would do well to study the career of Katharine Graham, one of the great American publishers of the last century. Kay Graham seemed to accept Washington as her personal responsibility, a sort of civic duty. She hadn't changed, though Washington had. Very occasionally, she would deliver a sharp rebuke.

Yesterday, the cats over at Gizmodo got a look at what appeared to be a pretty groundbreaking product from Microsoft -- the Courier -- a dual-screen, multitouch tablet with an advanced UI the likes of which we've rarely seen. According to the site's report, the product was in "late prototype" stages, and judging from the video, it looked to be pretty far along (at least as far as software was concerned). Today, MobileTechWorld looks as though it might be shedding a little more light on the device and its software... but it might not be quite what you think. The article in question points to two very revealing projects within Microsoft's R&D labs that have marked similarities to the Courier. InkSeine UI Courier UI The second item of note is Microsoft Research's Codex Project (a project we covered back in October of 2008). Most interesting of all is that these two projects have been put into play in tandem, with InkSeine running on the Codex Project's dual-screen tablet. [Thanks, Polo]
