re: SMIC appoints former Intel exec to board

But what's not to like about it? They can help SMIC do a better job and, under the pressure of GloFo, Samsung and Intel joining the foundry ranks, SMIC needs some help. And is not more a case of Sean Maloney, having retired from Intel, just looking for something to maintain his interest and fit in between his retirement hobbies.

Not altogether sure I like the sound of this... when you combine Maloney and Tan, they add up to a ton of influence with, and insight into, how cutting-edge designs go together. Very smart long-term strategery! (another way of saying the US is allowing the export (or co-opting) of more shortcuts to advanced technology.)
