Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • oriental people…?
    david derbyshire, clearly you didn’t mean any offence by your outdated and pejorative use of oriental.

  • Dan, why would u assume that? It’s true David was born on the occidental side of the world but I was born on the oriental and I take no offence. In fact, I quite enjoy having a different perspective on things and some people find that refreshing.

  • Thanks Dan. But from what I understand, the word is not offensive when used by Europeans and the English – and David is English.
    Do you think the English should adopt the American understanding of this word and its corresponding usage?
    And don’t “Oriental” and “Asian” both mean “from the east”?
