Education is not skill or motivation
I couldn't work in IT in china, always being scrutinized, under crazy threats by government. It's so anti-motivational. Just being creative can be seen as a threat. This is why very little is developed and most tech creativity is stolen and brought to china, no reason to put in the effort. Not like if you do good you can buy (and drive) a car, or travel. I mean, might as well wash dishes for a living. Much safer off the radar.
