Chinese Use Ancient Oriental Secrets to Hack US Computers

A Chinese hacker. He hates us for our freedom.
They operate from a bare apartment on a remote island in the East. Their skin is dark, their hair is black, their eyes... slanty. These are the Chinese, the crafty people inhabiting vast regions of land across the seas, and they are attacking our internets.

According to U.S. Defense experts, ancient Chinese philosophy and culture, these pearls of mystic wisdom which have been passed down and polished through untold dynasties, are in fact entirely designed to provide the modern day Chinaman with the secrets by which he will destroy our internets, steal our infos, and wreak pestilence upon all civilized peoples of the West.

Yesterday, one of these sly hackers, who wished to be known as Xiao Chen, because "those stupid foreign devils will never figure out how to pronounce it," revealed to reporters a number of these ancient Oriental secrets which will soon become our demise:

"There is a saying," said Xiao Chen, "Know about both yourself and the enemy, and you will be invincible." Reporters were soon lulled into a deep trance by the melodic tones of the Chinese tongue, and Xiao Chen promptly began stealing their secrets. However, one CNN reporter, trained in the arts of psychic resistance, remained stolidy unfazed. Xiao Chen continued, "Lao Tzu also says: The way that can be named is not the true way."

Ancient Chinese hacking tool.
According to expert Sinologists contracted to the Pentagon, Lao Tzu was one of the forefathers of ancient Chinese thought, and was primarily responsible for developing the mysterious secrets which will soon end our cherished way of life. According to one professor of Classical Chinese who wished to remain anonymous, "Lao Tzu" simply means "old man," but when written backwards and upside down with a brush made of wolves' hair dipped in the blood of a diseased yak, means "attack internets."

U.S. Military analysts say that although the technology is not yet ready, they are hopeful that we will soon be on the way to developing a functional time machine. "We're gonna travel back there and stop that slanty bastard before he even gets started," said one defense official. "We are going to nip this thing in the bud. Then our internets will be safe."

I moved out of my friend Frank's on Wednesday and into a place near Dongzhimen. It's working out really well since a friend happened to be leaving for a month in the Philippines, so I'm paying for his rent for a month and staying in his room. I'm living with a French guy and a Chinese girl. It's a really nice place, it's incredible what you can get when you split the cost with housemates. I took some pictures but I'll have to post them in a few days since I left the USB cable to my camera at Frank's.

Although this isn't quite as close to the center of the city as Frank's, it's still pretty good. We're right on the loop line. It's hard for me to get oriented, since I'm so used to being way out east near the fourth ring, and now I'm right on the second ring, and it's confounding that I have to go east instead of west to get to some of my old haunts. It's almost absurdly luxurious.

I registered with the local police…

Cognitive Dissonance or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Job

Don't let the title fool you, I don't actually love my job.

Nor have I seen Dr. Strangelove.

Nevertheless, it's been such a long time and I wanted to write something about my job.  The reasons I haven't written about it for so long are a mixture of respect for whatever nondisclosure terms might have been lurking in my contract, a fear of seeming disrespectful or disloyal to any potential future employers who might grace the pages of this blog, and mostly, the fact that my company's website is so ridiculously awful and the content is so immensely stupid that it's not even worth the space on this page to point it out.  I was also somewhat concerned that a coworker would stumble upon my site and I would be in trouble, except that a) my coworkers can't really read English, and b) I kind of half want to get fired at this point.  So what merits this special occasion today?  Well, I just happen to be so numbed by the Olympics, the insipid circle-jerk of the media …

Google thinks my China consulting business is a good idea

I was just curious what I could do to boost traffic to my site (Joel Rosen China Consulting), so I did a little keyword search on Google Insights to see what people are searching for when they need a China consultant.  The findings are encouraging:

1. Massachusetts ranks highest for searches on "china consulting," even beating out California.
2. "china consulting" isn't nearly as popular a set of keywords as "china business," but handily beats keyword sets "china market research," "china market entry," and "china advisory".
3. Most popular searches with the "china consulting" keywords are "consulting in china" and "china business consulting" - the latter of which is rising in popularity.

Looks like I may be Jewish after all.
