    Thousands of workers in this factory assembling and testing fiber optic systems. In many places of the Chinese economy, human labor replaces automation (in contrast to Japan, for example).

      Well, consider that fiber optic system might be part of why the internet is working right now so that I can kill time on Flcikr ..... salute! to these workers. XD They should give them better chairs though; those don't look very comfortable for long shifts.

      Reminds me of the English cotton mills of the 1800s.

      I have a picture like this of the inside of the Jilong fiber optic plant in China. Looks similar.
