Traditional and Mobile
I've been wanting to post this photo for a while for what it represents (courtesy of Rick Voorhees): This young woman is a server at a Beijing tea house/restaurant located in a former home of a Chinese member of court. She is beautifully dressed in period costume and sending our order to the kitchen with her handheld device. By nature, we tend to think in dichotomous terms--it's certainly not an "either/or" solution here!
