Hello, I’m Kevin, the author and founder of Interconnected.

Interconnected is a publication that looks at the venn diagram of builders (entrepreneurs & engineers), operators (business managers), investors (capitalists), regulators (politicians and government officials), and how they are all connected.

I happen to have seen the world through all four lenses at one point or another in my life: as a founder of an e-commerce company and health insurance startup, a staffer at the White House (Obama) and on political campaigns, an executive and advisor at a few cross-border enterprise technology companies, and in venture capital investing. I studied Law and Computer Science at Stanford, and International Relations at Brown University.

My writings on this newsletter and elsewhere have gained the attention of renowned journalists, investors, and entrepreneurs:

My commentary has been cited in the New York Times, Al Jazeera, among other media outlets. You can also hear me talk about Interconnected on these podcasts:

Why Write This Newsletter?

I believe discovering these “interconnections” can give you an edge in building companies, investing in businesses, hiring talent, and ultimately a place to think as you seek information and progress.

“The skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think.” -- Edwin Schlossberg

New content is published every Thursday and Sunday.

Every piece of content is in both English and Chinese – an effort to build more common ground and information accountability between these two worlds. No lost in translation, no lost in suspicion, and no media filter, just words straight from me, the author himself. For a deeper exploration of why this publication is bilingual, see my post: "Why Write A Bilingual English-Chinese Tech Blog".

Sunday's post is a weekly wrap-up of six news items -- three from English language sources, three from Chinese language sources -- that I find relevant in our exploration of the interconnections between technology, business, investment, and geopolitics. Each item will have a one-paragraph commentary from me on why I think the story is noteworthy. All these "Interconnected Weekly" wrap-ups are HERE.

Thursday's post is an original, in-depth analysis. Topics range from covering specific businesses, like Facebook, Zoom, or AWS, to larger trends, like "Open Source in China" and "Is the Cloud Recession-Proof ".

大家好,我是Kevin,《互联》的作者和创始人。

《互联》是一个电子周刊,从分析创建者(企业家,工程师)、运营者(企业经理)、投资者(资本家)和监管者(政客和政府官员)的角度和“维纳图”,以及他们之间的相互联系,来分析各个行业和思考宏观趋势。

这四个角度我个人都多多少少经历过:我曾经做过一家电商和医疗保险公司的创始人,美国白宫和奥巴马总统竞选团队的工作人员,跨国企业科技公司的高管和顾问,以及风险投资。我在斯坦福大学读过法律和计算机科学,在布朗大学读过国际关系。

我在这篇周刊和其他地方写的文章已经获得了著名记者、投资人和企业家的关注:

我的评论被《纽约时报》、Al Jazeera等媒体引用。您还可以在这些播客中听我讨论《互联》的内容:

为什么要写这个周刊?

我深信,发现这些“互联”可以帮大家在构建企业、投资公司、招聘人才等方面取得优势,所以想通过这个电子周刊分享我看到的、想到的。也希望通过我的写作给大家在这个复杂的世界里一个静静思考的空间。

“写作是给他人创造一个可以思考的环境。”——Edwin Schlossberg

新内容每周四和周日出版。

每一篇内容都用中英文双语撰写,希望以此让文章里的想法接触更多读者(并得到更多的反馈和批评)。无需翻译,无需媒体过滤,内容不会“在翻译中迷失”,或“在怀疑中迷失”,一切都是本作者真实的想法。想了解我对双语写作更深层次思考的读者,请看这篇文章:“为什么写中英双语的科技博客”。

每周日的文章是一篇总结,涵盖我挑选的前一周内对探索科技、商业、投资和地缘政治之间的联系最相关、最有价值的六条新闻,其中三条原文是英文,三条原文是中文。每条新闻都会附加一段我的评论,指出它为什么值得我们的注意。所有“每周互联”的总结文章都收集在这里

每周四的文章则是一篇原创的深入分析。话题的覆盖范围很广,有时会是分析具体的公司和业务,比如FacebookZoomAWS,有时则是针对宏观趋势的讨论,比如“中国的开源世界”和“云计算是否能抵御经济衰退?”。

我希望这种内容的混合能让《互联》周刊达到广度和深度的平衡。
