Remember, when YouTube was founded in the U.S., America’s Funniest Home Videos had been around for a long time. In China, the history of TV as well as user-generated video is very, very short. So, we’ve actually had to do a lot of things to motivate that.

Until we accept the fact that life itself is founded in mystery, we shall learn nothing.
