Issue No. 205 | Oct. 7, 2020
Dedicated to the development of the stewards of U.S.-China relations
Weekly Reading
This week we recommend reading the latest article from Interconnected (as you can tell, one of our favorite newsletters out there) about open source technology, originally published in English in Wired Magazine. The article, "The Future of American Industry Depends on Open Source Tech," is not only worth reading for the content itself, but the Chinese version also uses tech vocabulary that is important for understanding the future of U.S.-China relations. The piece is available to read on Interconnected in both English and Chinese. 

俗语 from Xi Jinping's Speeches
jī tǔ ér wéi shān, jī shuǐ ér wéi hǎi

Meaning: pile up soil to form mountains, and collect water to form seas; a metaphor of accumulation from less into more.

Original: “积土而为山,积水而为海,幸福和美好未来不会自己出现,成功属于勇毅而笃行的人。"

Source: This quote from Xi Jinping was delivered in 2018, but is being highlighted again for 中秋节 in this short 2-minute video.
