Alibaba CEO considers opening up an office in Vancouver.

Hmmm, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is seriously considering setting up shop in Vancouver.

Minister of Industry James Moore's tweet:
Had a great meeting with Alibaba.com CEO Jack Ma. Alibaba is seriously considering a new campus in Vancouver. #DigitalCanada

Alibaba's Jack Ma, China's richest man, eyes Vancouver for new office


Started in 1999 by the former high school English teacher, Alibaba Group and affiliated businesses has 600 million registered online buyers and is expected to handle about $270 billion in online transactions this year.



In September, Alibaba Group set a record $25 billion IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. The Chinese-based company is considered to be the world’s biggest online commerce company and has amassed hundreds of millions of users, and also is home to millions of merchants through its services — its three main sites are Taobao, Tmall and Alibaba.com.

CEO: Jack Ma

Net worth: $29.7 billion.

Alibaba will open office here. The suppliers on eBay and Amazon are all from Alibaba. Furthermore , Taobao/Alibaba sells more goods than ebay amazon walmart combined. The end of Amazon.ca and eBay.ca is approaching. And Jack Ma's son is currently studying at St.George's.

Gates started Microsoft in 1975 Alibaba was founded in 1999. 15 years after founding Microsoft Bill Gates was worth less than 10 Billion. So Jack Ma is doing better than Bill Gates.

The biggest problem with Taobao/Alibaba is shipping times.

Doesn't 'dick cunt' effectively negate itself into a non-insult?

That's like seeing 2 guys making out on Davie St. and saying "hey you non-fags stop kissing" -- while it may be offensive, the vernacular as a whole is clumsy, and after some interpretation and analysis a target may not find this offensive at all -- that's the opposite result of what we want

Food for thought!


edit:

Also, why would you only break one of my legs? I feel like it wouldn't take very much more energy expenditure to break both while you're at it.

Keeping with my theme of unrelated analogies, I'd liken this to only replacing one windshield wiper. Why? How much more effort and cost does it take to replace both? Canadian tire or one of our local sponsors usually gives a hell of a good deal on two. The only theory I can come up with is just pure laziness and lack of education -- oh hey, these two traits may be why you're so bitter in the first place


Anyways .. that was long and convoluted .. kind of like my looonggg dyyyyyykkuuhhhh (except less convoluted, can you imagine peeing with a convoluted penis? Yikes!)

is that rate adjusted for inflation? and you have to consider globalization as well? back then it wasn't as globalized.
