|Jiayou GaoShan, Jiayou Haonaner!
Yeah, I have joined a Chinese TV Show called JiaYouHaonaner (-> Go good man!). It is a Chinese equivalent to the American Idol program. And I was lucky enough to make it to the Top 10 in Shanghai. Then, it was time for me to go: I was picked with ShenYang, a true Chinese hero who works as a Pilot for China Eastern and was on the first flight crew of the first commercial flight from the Chinese mainland to Taiwan. A very historic moment. I am glad that I enabled Shenyang to pass to the next round :-)
Finally, Gaoshan has recorded his first Chinese song ;-). Its from my favourite Chinese Artist: TaoZhe. For me, he combines Chinese music with soul feeling. He should be listened to all over the world :). This song is actually half Chinese. A very good composition of ShaTan (Beach) and Somewhere over the rainbow.
TaoZhe: ShaTan - Somewhere over the rainbow
Since my singing on TV is not the easiest thing (you can't really hear yourself, the sound mixing is mostly not accurate, you are KINDA nervous), I decided to record my songs again in a studio so that you can listen to the real GaoShan ;-)

Check out my Year 2005 Review
Normally, these reviews are written in form of letters or emails. But I decided this year to produce a movie-like presentation with voice and
music. No reading required! Just download the archive, unpack it into a directory and start the PPS file. Then lean back and enjoy the Show!
For your convenience, I have also added a Navigation menu. So you don't have to do the whole thing in one go and can start from another chapter the next time you watch :-)
TheNewEconomy.de is online!
Actually, I bought this domain to build a center of discussion about the information economy.
However, ever since the dot com bust with all my shares shrinking to a minimum, my motivation slightly
decreased to maintain this site.
But time has passed and as I have worked and studied in China, I see this country as the new growth market
of the world economy. China has been a mecca for manufacturers for quite some time now but now, service providers
move up to more value-added service offerings.
For my part, Im happy that I had the chance to work at IBM in China where they operate a large SAP Competence center
which offers implementation, customization and maintenance services to domestic and overseas customers. During my work at
this department, I wrote my bachelor thesis about Knowledge Focus Strategy in China - thus analyzing the differences of
Chinese and Westerners when it comes to Knowledge Work.
For my part, Im happy that I didn't sell the domain since now I can use it again as the New Economy is... Knowledge Work in China!
