But China is a tough place to understand. Anyway, distinctions between print media and online are blurring rapidly in both business and consumer areas. There are two firms potentially in play that might have got some attention over in Gothenburg at AB Volvo, home of Volvo Truck.
While it cannot be disputed that vehicles, through their emissions, create what economists call 'negative externalities' the Californian action is an odd one in terms of its implications. The media speculation is, frankly, all over the place.
If the folks at some car companies still take the attitude that they only deal with newspapers, mags or TV and websites can just take a hike, well, more fool them. Not too surprising that Ford has gone down that road after GM's success with a similar package. I suspect that he would rather Renault takes its time to get it right, but the timetable outlined by Mr Ghosn certainly adds another pressure. I learnt a bit about aluminium extrusions and the bonding that is behind the Elise chassis, among other things.
Only heard the poor bloke was seriously ill very recently - he was carrying on working as normal, as far as he could - and he was only in his thirties.
May the best map win. AB Volvo - looking on impassively?
That was followed by a few glasses of champagne in a pavement bar and in the agreeable company of some JD Power analysts.
Good of Ford to host what is basically a tribute to British Leyland.
But don't rule it out if things in Detroit get worse rather than better. Frustrated by the delays and power in the traditional peer-review system, some scientists are turning to an online open review system.
It's all about developing relationships etc. I reckon Ghosn sees low-hanging fruit in purchasing and product engineering and also sees a challenge he would like, cemented with some sort of capital tie-up.
Initial indications are that there are several credible expressions of interest in the company that used to be a byword for uneconomic business practices.
Only heard the poor bloke was seriously ill very recently - he was carrying on working as normal, as far as he could - and he was only in his thirties. Automakers with big investments in China will no doubt be keeping a close eye on things - the investment community has already caught a chill. That's what really matters. I think the cultural differences would come through big time.
But don't rule it out if things in Detroit get worse rather than better. More arrogant people often cause greater damage in the long run.
If everything else is apparently in the pot as a possibility why not this one? The painful truth is that Ford has had too much manufacturing capacity tied-up making products that the market no longer wants. More arrogant people often cause greater damage in the long run.
"This is what people are hoping to see. Nissan Qashqai looked good.
