There used to be a thread on this, but couldn't dig it up.

Anyone in china at the moment?

I'm currently in dongguan till Sunday.

Up for a meet up if possible. Currently at Royal Lagoon hotel in DG.

I was in DG for the past 2 weeks (visiting our softgoods factories); just got back to Toronto on Saturday night. Seems we just missed each other.

Back in the office today and starting to fade - any tips for adjusting to the 12 hour time difference? It always affects me more coming home.

Melatonin - Find it in the herbal supplement section of your local grocery, or drug store. Works like a charm.

Nobody, really.. ? I swear I've seen a group from NB and possibly converse and maybe Nike here in the hotel. Guess maybe the reach of core is not as great as I thought.

I do have a few friends in Vietnam right now, but no one I can think of in China

It seems to me that some bright iPhone programmer could develop a location-aware app called "Designers in China". Designers register at Core77 and leave your GPS activated while traveling in China. You could pull up the app on your phone and see which pub or KTV lounge the design crowd is populating that night.

Just a thought...

That would be great. When I was in Hong Kong it was a revolving door of US designers coming through. Since many designer head straight into China now the number must be huge.

I'll be in the Shenzhen area from 4/19 to 4/28 and then in HK on the weekend of the 24-25th and btw the 28th and May 3rd.

If anyone is going to be around then maybe we can have a little meet up.

That would be awesome. Sorta like foursquare for designers. I always like to play the "which brand are those guys from?" game trying to guess based on look, shoes, language, etc.

Cool.

Btw, my awesome powers of deduction were correct. Met the NB group last nite. It was a pretty easy call. 5 Americans, two pairs of NB, one pair of PFs and a guy with a redsox hat :)
