Grats, Junko! I am so happy for you and can't wait to see more Asian news from you. As the manufacturing companies move, the design centers move. The news organizations move closer to the major hub of those companies make total sense. Does it mean the semiconductor business come to "vanishing" in the western countries soon? Or it simply means globalization reach the next level and soon, better communication technologies are required soon. Globalization as an opportunity. ;)

your points are well taken, WW Thinker. We are fully aware that the coverage of any country can't be done soley by a "foreign-born journalist." My responsibiliity is in identifying sources and do the China coverage in collaboration with locals. There is no question about that. That said, as a "foreign-born jounalist," I have been covering stuff happening outside my native country. So, don't count me out.

Junko is certainly a well-respected journalist. However, I am amazed that EE Times is still taking a western-centric approch in this century. A foreign-born journalist is hardly the best way to find out what and how in a new country. Instead, take the localized approach and find a journalist that was born in China (or Taiwan), educated aboard, well experienced. Many semiconductor companies have been taking the localization approach. For example, Philip Semi (now NXP) moved its Tuner Division HQ to China many years ago, Renesas & NEC Electronics had a China-born (worked in US in the past) person as the president of its subsidiary in China. The absence of a following statement to "Cheap labor, fake chips, counterfeit DVDs, ..." shows the wrong attitude. That following statement should be "countries like Japan, Taiwan, Korea also received similar accusation in the past. Let's take a concerted effort to find out if China simply follows the footsteps of these now well-recognized countries or not ..."

Junko, Congratulations to you for this new assignment and i believe , we will be able to see China from inside now that you will be writing about your real life interactions with the Chinese industry , Chinese bureaucracy , the Chinese labor force and the Chinese psychology and the Chinese culture. At the fag end of my career as an engineer , I had a chance to visit China almost every month for a year and that experience is something unforgettable - their hard work, their hospitality and their ingenuity. All the best!

Yoshida - san : Perhaps you would also do an essay on how democratic Japan will now have to live under the shadow of the still very Communist but also Neo - Imperialistic China, thanks to thoughtless / irresponsible outsourcing and technoloy xfer from US to PRC driven by Wall St. The US has foolishly dug a hole for itself but unfortunately Japan has become a collateral damage.

As an EE embedded system designer, I plan to have my startup in South China instead of in US this year. EE design in US is diminishing and even though I can find good engineers here, the eco-system is just not as complete.

First, thank you so much for chiming in with such kind words. I am truly excited about my new adventure. I am planning to be in China early June. Drop me a line if you are already in China or you plan to be there during that time! junko.yoshida@ubm.com

Put a 'I' instead of 'we' here, plz? did you get other folks endorsement? Just like Obama agrees with gay marriage doesn't mean all americans are for gay marriage.
