Caught in the Middle : Korea's next Move Against U.S and China

2014 - 11 - 27

Love it or hate it, just like U.S military’s global power projection, the rise of China is as much an issue that we can’t avoid. From our perspective, we hate Washington more than Beijing. But we have spent as much time visiting and learning form both countries for the past 20 years.



夾在兩強之間、左右為難,這點沒什麼,大家都是半斤八兩。讀者若認為美國狀似鴨霸,其立場就很容易拿捏吧? 重點在於自己有沒有中心思想。我們的中心思想始終還算明確:「窮盡在任何國家能借助取用的資源,讓我們立足於台灣的各個創業最佳化,免於單一影響力之宰制」。



“As South Korean manufacturers relocate to reduce costs and entrench themselves in China’s huge market, trade has shot up. Last year, China accounted for a quarter of South Korea’s $560 billion in total exports. The U.S. share stood at 11%, down from around 40% in the 1980s.”[1]

South Korea Looks to Prosper in China While Staying Close to U.S.


“Cultural ties also have grown. Today, there are almost as many South Korean students enrolled at colleges in China as in the U.S. Last year, Chinese tourists were the largest group of visitors to South Korea.”[1]


那麼,首爾的中心思想究竟是什麼呢? 我們開始好奇了。老實講,除了茶餘飯後的笑談話題之外,以前從來沒把南北韓當回事過。至盼能藉著南韓行和Kindle上買來的兩本書,略略以管窺天。

The Difficult Situations of Netflix, Spotify and Pandora

The online music and video streaming services are facing the same uphill battle. 目前線上的影音串流業者,都面臨類似的困境。Netflix只有美國的實體DVD郵寄業務賺錢,串流部分則是做得愈多,虧得愈大。Spotify更不必講了,在全球喊得很大聲,然而它不但年年在賠,還賠很多。 只有Pandora,在串流音樂的領域是非常成功的。它砍掉搜尋這種on-demand功能,而主張自己是radio station之模式,支付遠較Spotify這種業者低的權利金。惟其在北美以外一直沒有明確的海外擴張計畫,因此台灣對它比較不熟悉。 它的UI/UX看得出是千錘百鍊的最佳化配置、進入市場早(2000年)、每年包括MAU(目前有八千萬人)及聆聽總時數等等各重要數據都正成長(以營收而言,2012年4億、13年6億、14年9.2億、15年近12億);而在營收配置上,廣告占80%、premium訂戶占20%,更是值得參考的模式。 在影音串流領域表現佳,但目前在NYSE上,Pandora市值不到美金20億,去年營收近12億,四年來都一樣,小虧。併掉了Rdio之後也不會有改善。 讀者可以參考華爾街日報的這篇文章: Pandora Media Swings to Loss Amid Higher Expenses Web-radio-service Pandora Media Inc. on Thursday swung to a loss in its…

Class-Action Suit Against Uber

To many, Uber is sleek and convenient, but this is not about the service itself. We would like to discuss its “class”. 對很多人來說,Uber的服務很方便也很新潮,但本文並不打算評價Uber服務本身好壞,我們想要談談這世上最有錢(當然是創投砸的)新創公司的「格調」。 目前,Uber的司機數已達三十萬人。在他們的簽訂的工作合約中,Uber規定: 1. 不准去法院告Uber,有問題只准提仲裁 2. 不准聯手其他司機對Uber提出集體訴訟 Technicality Ties Up Uber Technologies In the agreement…
