My name is David Wolf. I was born and raised in California but have been calling Beijing home since 1995. My day job is serving as Managing Director of the Global China Practice of Allison+Partners, a San Francisco-based international public relations firm, and in my spare time I’m a technologist, futurist, writer, speaker, and amateur historian.
About Silicon Hutong
My goal here is simple: I want you to feel like each visit you make to this site – or each time you read a post on your RSS reader – is time and effort well spent. My focus is on business in and with China generally, but I tend to focus on several areas:
- Technology and the innovative industries;
- Media, entertainment, and the creative industries;
- Communications and marketing; and
- The role of policy and international affairs in all of the above.
I have strong opinions about a lot of things, but as an old sergeant told me once, opinions are like armpits – everyone has a couple, and they all stink. The web has proven as much. For that reason, I will opine only on those topics where I assume (humbly, of course) that I bring an informed point of view to the table, but I will not hold forth just to watch myself type: I promise to do so only when I have something to say that might offer insight.
