There are some superstars in Chinese web. Pony Ma who created Tencent and Robin Li who built Baidu, are great Chinese entrepreneurs, but some people still question about them and remind us of the ICQ and Google. Kaifu Lee probably is another one as he has millions of Chinese students fans. Lee is indeed a great educator and has become an international icon. But we have to think of a simple fact that he never led a Chinese local company. In my humble opinion, there is probably only one figure here in China web, and this man is, Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba (check out our coverage on the history of Alibaba).

I am reading a great article written by my friend James Cheng published on a popular magazine The Founder. I don’t want to translate the whole article here, instead, I attached the following diagram from the article (I revised it since it is originally with Chinese caption) that should be enough to explain the reason that I believe Jack Ma is the ONE.

The diagram demonstrate the Alibaba’s Cloud Service, which is for me, Jack Ma’s Kingdom.
