Thank you for posting this lecture. While there wasn't too much here that I was not already familiar with it is nice to see the Chinese are not fighting as much as previously the concept that some of their early developmental stages might have been as the result of imports from the west. Will any of the other speaker's presentations be forthcoming?

Let's hope so. Thanks for your insights.
