This project came about in response to the continually increasing number of english-speakers learning chinese. After many years studying chinese myself, and seeing friends do likewise, there were a number of tedious functions I came to feel a computer was better suited to do. Some hair-pulling web-development later, the TheChineseReader™ (TCR) was born.
The feautures of this site are constantly under development, though the speed of that development may not be all too impressive. If you have suggestions for fixes, new features, or other general feedback & inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
TCR is not a commercial site per se, though we are supported by sponsored advertisements, which help cover the costs of hosting, development, and maintenance. Thanks for understanding.
My name is Adam. I am a recent graduate of UPenn, now living in San Francisco. I work for a Management Consultancy, which leaves not that much time to work on this site. =) But I'll try to keep it up to date and add features when time permits.
The reader would not function very well without the unsung contributions of all those behind the technologies and data-resources used in this site—particularly those in the open-source community. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge them:
Ryan—for the technical expertise that powered me through the nastier bits of development. Jazzyblue—for color expertise. Lars—for deployment expertise. Jasmine, Cole, Jon, and Daniel—for putting up with my questions, pesterings, and general preoccupation while making the site. Mom, Dad, grandparents, and teachers past—for the upbringing and education that enabled and encouraged me to make the site.
