Saturday afternoon Gary and I had to discuss a couple of strategic issues and decided to meet in the Old China Hand Reading Room. It was a good place for a rainy, dark December afternoon. Inside it was warm and there was some nice background music. We managed the get the big table in the middle of the room in front of the bookshelves.
In 3 hours we managed to get a lot of stuff done, and at least two important decisions were made. The first one is related to Toodou, and we plan to officially announce it on January 6. We need to do a bit more research on feasibility and regulations before I can write about it here. The other one is more private: we picked a timeframe for our sportive event of 2006, the Lhasa – Khatmandu bike ride (more later in another post).
