I am reading the English version. Tomorrow is the Olympiad torch relay in Hong Kong (May 2) -- I was reading the newspaper on May Day and found out Samsung recruited schools and sponsoring and shuttling the kids to the event, in exchange of
chanting "Samsung xxx"; in the official photo of the candidates to relay the torch around the city, I can clearly see a five or six young people wearing a scarlet shirt -- says "Coca Cola" but not "Good Luck China"... The taking over of the public space cannot be more conspicuous in 2008 Olympic.
Similar to the experience of after reading N. Chomsky and other related work on media bias in English 100a (?) at UCLA, finding out the hidden "vector" of FedEx (as in the arrow "Ex"), I can see it everywhere and in awe of how much efforts and $ media and ad agents and corp. embed symbols surrounding our daily life.
