[Ed: Two months ago, we announced MOBINODE  TV, a video blog focus on Chinese tech industry. Nearly 20 video interviews with local startups have been produced since then, and most of them were in Chinese. We said that we would launch its English version. We are still not ready yet, but we now made the first step. Thanks to Moy Hau who volunteered to make the English subtitles for us, so the great thoughts/stories from local entrepreneurs and grassroots can be truly shared with global audience.]
