About Maggie Xiao

I spent the early part of my career in tech media business in both Silicon Valley and Asia and eventually grew into a news junkie. When I worked at Red Herring magazine and led its Asia division, I also developed my curiosity in how technology impacts globalization – good or bad. Those interests only grew stronger in my career’s later days by working with startups, tech investors and other genius minds who refuse to wear any label. CONTRAST Notes is inspired by many conversations with them.
