Former American President Bill Clinton — no stranger to downloading porn, we’re sure — will visit Hangzhou on September 10 to address the 2005 China Internet Summit. The theme of the get-together organized by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba will be “Connecting China To The World” … well, just the parts of the world the Chinese government deems suitable for the Chinese people. Also expected to speak are CEOs from industry lightweights like Google, Amazon, Yahoo and Sohu. Hopefully one of the seminars will be entitled “How We Can Make Shanghaiist’s Internet Connection Less Shitty.”
The Chinese love Clinton, by the way. And Shanghaiist has yet to meet a Chinese person with anything nice to say about President Bush. For that reason, we think the Chinese should be allowed to vote in the next US presidential election.
