Lotus spreadsheet founder Mitch Kapor tells a story about how he was visiting a bazzar in China in the 80's and came across a pirated copy of Lotus 123 and pointed out to the vendor that this was his product, to which the vendor replied, "You want anyway?"

Yes, making a cellphone for $10 isn't too hard when you let somebody else do the design for free.  It's a great business model.

My experience is that the old joke is true: "At Microsoft, Quality is job 1.1"

Bunnie Huang is obviously enamoured with the Chinese disregard of intelectual property. I have heard him speak about how it fosters innovation.  This may be true of small incremental innovations where different people "riff" on a product idea; but it quite obviously would have the opposite effect for innovations which require large investments of time and money.

I think that his wish will not come true,

 "I'm looking forward to the return of artisan engineering, where elegance, optimization, and balance are valued over feature creep, and where I can use the same tool for a decade and not be viewed as an anachronism."

Instead, we have too many new technologies growing right in front of our eyes.

Actually, the fact that the von Neumann architecture has been utilized for so long had almost a stabilizing influence.

Now, we are entering the world of massively parallel program execution, sensorics which are increasingly deep and precise and a completely new way of processing data as such in the shape of neural networks, automata and "old fashonied" statistics. 3DXPoint and related solutions will allow to handle such massive data in ways never imagined, before.

Yup, and "AI chips for the masses" is the title of a Wired article even today.

My feeling is rather that the "Bladerunner" scenario as a future vision is not so far away, anymore, for better for worse, we shall see.

Bunnie says "Ship or die. Don't look to ship the perfect product. Shipping a product that's good enough is more important that shipping a product late." He's talking consumer products here,

What's your experience?

Have you been to China and seen waht goes on and how the people there deal with IP (or don't)? From what I read, the hacker community is one where people share information. That is, you take some, you give some.
