Like Road Blog:
When the Websters leave Normal, Illinois, for a family holiday, Austin and Ashley get pulled right back into the World Wide Web–and this time, Mr. and Mrs. Webster get sucked inside the Internet, too!

China will be ‘on top of us [U.S.]’ sooner than anyone expects. Similar to the 1980’s economic ‘invasion’ by the Japanese, the impact of China’s economic penetration will erupt unexpected, unforeseen and overnight.
