Hi there,

If anyone doubts the speed with which China is embracing
the 'western capitalistic philosophy' (and even with respect
to advertising) consider the following email. Alibaba.com is
China's foremost B2B trading site, and, the only business to
feature Australia Day in any email directly to moi in what one
supposes is their first spam to customers (in my experience).

I bet China's going to catch-up (over-take) re the net real quick:

Unfortunately, for me, I also read a blog-site in India where-in the
writer asserts that for China the North-West Cape area of Aussie
will be an almost irresistible target for their 'quick-and-dirty' nukes
in future because of the resources and near-zero population there.
And even more so if climate changes favour WA, and not China :-(
Who knows? But it certainly seemed to make much sense to him.

Anyway, at 01:24 PM 25/01/2007, Alibaba.com wrote:
