Wells on Chinese language

by Alex Stroup
Does any understand what Wells' point was in posting this Wired item about an Al Gore quote in Vanity Fair?

I'm just wondering if it's relevant that what is said in the quote isn't actually true but a kind of linguistic urban legend used by corporate buzz-word speakers.

I don't know anything about the Chinese language, but doesn't it feel like a linguistic urban legend used by corporate buzz-word speakers.

Yes it does, but I've always run into in environments already overflowing with corporate buzzwords so I never bothered to check if it was true.

Seeing it all on its lonesome it was finally time.
