1 China is not some giant hive mind

You are right there and I was wrong and too simplistic.

2 Stack Overflow is a good thing, right? Well, now it's open source, with a Chinese version online.

I haven't notice that. I just browse the site. And yes, it's a great thing, I agree with you.


Also, why, then, there is no mention to StackOverflow at all on CNProg.com? A bit of acknowledgement will be fine, even if it's an Open Source thing.

"Also, why, then, there is no mention to StackOverflow at all on CNProg.com?"


My chinese is pretty rusty, but in the 3rd section on that page it links to stack overflow and says something like, "Stack Overflow was just released from beta, and it's really great, but slow with localisation" as a reason why this site was created.

Sorry for assuming you were American. I should have guessed from the name! Now it's me making incorrect assumptions : /

Don't worry, I enjoy this kind of threads :-) I will contact the programmers of SO and offer my help to translate CNProg to other languages now I know it's an Open Source initiative.
