For Taiwan's large and growing semiconductor industry, the future could hardly look brighter. Already a major world producer, its state-of-the-art silicon chip factories sit barely 100 miles across the Taiwan Strait from China, the biggest emerging high-tech market anywhere--a market with which it shares a common language, culture and heritage.

But he had never before seen his colleague C.Y. Shih at the plant on a weekend until that Saturday in September 2001. He'd never seen anyone making so many photocopies either. Shih, a manager in TSMC's technology transfer division, was huddled over the copier that weekend amassing piles and piles of paper.
