Gary Wang, founder of Tudou, interviewed by Silicon Dragon author

Gary Wang recently chatted with me at a coffee shop in a major Beijing shopping mall about how he's ramping up his YouTube video sharing site of China, named Tudou or "couch potato" in Chinese. Gary faces government censorship and struggles to keep up with bandwidth demands for streaming all those clips. Plus, it has LOTS of competitors, among them Youku.
