Social media are useful in exposing whats happening to the outside world, but its a mistake to think that these protests [in Iran] are because of social media-Ethan Zuckerman Senior Researcher at Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University11Social-Media Experts

24Since Chairman Mao passed away a new Chairman has come to represent the aims of Chinese youth.

Chairman Mao was the great symbol of revolutionary China, But Bill Gates has become the new idol of the youth in China.

Books by or about Microsofts Chairman Bill Gates are massive best sellers across China, even in rural areas where technology is non-existent.

25According to the author Chairman Gates is everything Chairman Mao was not. Mao closed newspapers, universities, and isolated China from the world.

Chairman Gates celebrates free enterprise and is busy forging partnerships with Chinese entrepreneurs, creating cyber colleges and integrating Chinas best and brightest into the web-linked world.

26Chinas internet population has recently jumped by 23 percent to reach 130 million people, but is still only 1/10th of Chinas 1.3 billion citizens.

The main problem that Microsoft is facing is that the number of counterfeiters are growing and surprisingly Gates is being very tolerant, which has created a paradoxical image of an internet-age Robin Hood.
