Help in Guangzhou

Posted by: Bruce Einhorn on December 10, 2007

From my BusinessWeek colleague David Rocks, who’s traveling in southern China’s Guangdong province: “I was having trouble getting online at the White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou, in the heart of China’s Pearl River Delta. So I dialed the help line. I didn’t actually ask where the call center that responded was located, but it sure sounded the person I was talking to was in India!”

I have a strong suspicion that BW has actually outsourced Bruce's blog. Some of his posts are barely more intelligent than all the India-China hyperbole in the reader comments. "Help in Guangzhou" is such a gem of a piece that could very well be written by Balraj Yadav sitting in Noida.

lol lol

And the point of this article is ?

Bruce is being childish again.

I don't know who is running businessweek, but this kind of journalism does really affect the credibility of the site in general.
