The Local Face of Sun in China
By melinchina on Jun 17, 2008
LISA (Localization Industry Standards Association) is one of the professional organizations in the Globalization industry and they recently did an article called "The Local Face of Sun in China" about Sun's engineering work in Beijing. They interviewed our site director Sin-Yaw Wang and me. You can read the article here.
This was my first time being interviewed for an article like this and I learned a lot. The main thing I learned is what it's like to hear your own words after they've gone through someone else's filter. I'm not saying the interviewer misquoted me - she didn't.
But it changed the way I think about communication. It made me wonder, let's say I do an all-hands with my team and afterwards I asked them to write down the top three things they remember, would they be the three things I thought were most important? Would the messages sound different coming back from my audience? (Sad note to self,those were all closed questions ...)
