Ian Johnson: Discontent in China’s Most Polluted Cities

Entrepreneurial angle of this article:

Let’s put aside of the whole anxious story about heavy pollution, old abandoned stories, government pressure and so on, and the story mentioned an App. It was a start-up by two guys named Wang Jun and Zhang Bin, they developed an App called “China Air Quality Index” while they were pondering on the fact of pollution. It was so successful that they got two and a half million download, average four thousand downloads per day. 

It does not mean Chinese people cannot be creative. But to be strict, this is not something very much creative as well. This is a collective data app, but the spirit is good. If there is a need, maybe another Apple will be created.
