From San Francisco Chronicle:
Alex Zhang opines on his blog about music and movies and, most recently, learning to drive on Beijing’s congested roads.
The 25-year-old sends instant messages to friends on his computer and cell phone, hangs out at social-networking site Xiaonei and downloads American and Chinese movies and television shows from Web sites like Xunlei.
“I would feel uncomfortable if the computer can’t connect to the Internet,” said Zhang, who earned a master’s degree in engineering from Tsinghua University in Beijing this spring.
Zhang is representative of China’s well-connected youth, for whom the Internet and cell phone have become critical communication tools.
