Whats the meaning behind the name “Shenzhen Team”?

Posted by

Shenzhen Team, or SZteam (we picked a shorter english name for a bunch of reasons: The internet is all about short URLs – the full name of Shenzhen is too long, SZ is commonly known to both foreigners and Chinese to represent Shenzhen. Twitter and Weibo – online, there are limits more and more to the length of a URL, especially microblogging, so only 6 characters Easier for Chinese to remember – sure, many other English websites in Shenzhen are spelled out like , , – but those sites are doing 2 things, targetting SEO for the […]

We both came about the same idea in different ways, and fortunately got put in touch over the internet at about the right time. I’ll start with Mike […]
