American chopsticks for the Chinese

Here is an amusing story from the Economist about a Georgia based company that makes chopsticks and exports them to China. Thought some of you might enjoy this: http://www.economist.com/node/21525961

This is really a good and motivating story, motivation in the sense that smart people find the opportunity in small things also. Opportunities solely depends on the thinking of the person, if we don't think with a seed, we'll never get a tree as the result.
