Get A Grip On Lighting: “The China Question” Response

lightED is running a multiple-part series on how some lighting is manufactured in China. Written by Michael Colligan of the “Get A Grip On Lighting” podcast, the Gonzo-style journalism in “The China Question” takes us inside China for a look at what is really happening to the people who live there, and the way the lighting you are selling is made.

Some people have commented that they enjoy the series.

Others don’t like it at all, saying tED magazine should be “embarrassed.”

Rather than walk away from the criticism, the guys at the “Get A Grip On Lighting” podcast invited one of the critics, Ted Konnerth, to talk about why he is so passionate about his criticism of tED magazine and the “China Question” articles.

You can see how the conversation went below.  Please feel free to read both parts one and two of “The China Question” and leave your comments below.

We are currently working on more parts of “The China Question” for lightED, and hope to have them posted for you in the near future.

    I like the articles on China and Lighting ! I also agree that we have watched China steal our technology and jobs. Just as your critic said – American Lighting Companies – US CEO’s moved manufacturing to China. A few years later – US Electrical distributors then bought “China private label” – same stuff as American Lighting Companies. – Everyone saved pennies and all US players lost. I really like your Gonzo reporting !
