China abgeschnitten von westlicher Technik

Es wird aus meiner Sicht immer deutlicher, daß China von westlicher Technik abgeschnitten werden soll.

Aber eigentlich ist das schon zu spät, da China der westlichen Welt in vielen Dingen schon mindestens einen Schritt voraus ist.

Deswegen sind viele von unseren Aktionen eher darauf ausgelegt, uns einen Bestandsschutz zu verschaffen und unsere Industrie vor den chinesischen Anwendungen zu schützen.

Die USA und der Westen sehen natürlich, daß uns da ein Konkurrent davon läuft.

Hinter dem Zaun

Aber das ist aus meiner Sicht der falsche Ansatz. Es hilft nichts, den Kopf wie der Vogel Strauß in den Sand zu stecken. Deswegen verschwindet die Konkurrenz nicht.

Unsere Kinder müssen sich warm anziehen…

Notepad++ is banned in China after ‘Stand With Hong Kong’ update

What a cracy world we are living in. The very popular software Notepad++ is banned in China. Let’s see how long that ban will be active. On the other hand I guess that there will be other similar software solutions available for China.

More and more countries are banning software.
And looking at the tiktok battle that is going on between the US and China, it’s getting more and more obvious that this is a fight for power.

I’m betting that the US is loosing that conflict in the long term. They cannot just block hardware like Huawei and software like tiktok. It’s getting clear that the US is getting behind and is no longer „first“ in these technologies.

But instead of putting plenty of money in the development of such technologies to stay competible, they are putting their money in the development of weapons.

Like the technical evolution turned from a hardware focus to a software focus, there will also be a shift from the physical weapon power to the power of economics.

And China is already ahead in the area of economics. Just look at the Neue Seidenstrasse and how much property they already own in Africa and in the USA, for example.

A nice article by the Guardian of the German way of refugee integration into the society.
