1) I do believe Chinese guys are not good at running IT business. Of course, there are exceptions. Generally speaking, Indians do much better in business than Chinese because of their language advantage.
For new Chinese immgrants, mots of them have lanaguge problems, so it is very hard for them to launch their IT business.

2) In contrast with what Sam described, Jabber has some North-American experiences. He works as a Java comsultant.
He has ever got an offer from Silicon Valley, but he declined. He probably won't be interested in working in Silicon Valley.
BY the way, I have ever worked in New York
and San Diego, CA.

3) I agree with Sam on the following concepts: 做软件行业,编程语言并不很重要。 最重要的是对数据结构和操作系统的理解,以及对PROTOCOL的理解. However,
few novices can handle these things. Give you an example. I have ever interviewd a Java guy who used JDBC-ODBC bridge in production. He cliamed before me that JDBC-ODBC is different from JDBC.

4) Since I began my programmer career, I have not yet been fired. But I have ever terminated a contract in advance. Accidentally, the boss was a Chinese guy.
The reason I asked to release my contract is I could not go along with his CTO.

5) Indeed, 硅谷这样的中国人的公司很多。
However, the people who run these companies usually have very strong technical backgrounds. Ususally, they had worked for other companies for some time
before they started up their own business.
I understand Sam holds a degree in Computer Science from a prestigious US universities.
