[Gang Lu: There are some companies which you know they are based in Silicon Valley or somewhere outside Asia and they are already the shining stars in global web2.0 industry, but you probably do not know their co-founders are actually originally from Asia. They obviously have some advantage when they expand to Asia. We are going to discover more about them and introduce them to Asia web too. We believe, the Asia web can learn from them, and on the other hand, you can see them as the examples, the examples of the Innovation which you will see soon from Asia. RockYou is one of the greatest.

And, If you are aware of how hot the Open Platform is in China, you will feel how much we need a platform like RockYou. I just can not stop thinking, we may see many RockYou-likers showing up in 2009. ] 

RockYou, founded by Lance Tokuda and Jia Shen in 2006, is a widget/applications company for social networks.  RockYou, originally named RockMySpace, started out as a simple slideshow widget on MySpace and then moved into the realm of social applications with the advent of developer platforms on Facebook, MySpace, and OpenSocial.  After securing a strong foothold in the widget/application space in North America, RockYou is now gunning for Asia (It’s Chinese version has been launched).
