She writes: “Te-Ping Chen, a Wall Street Journal reporter until recently based in Beijing, imagines a pair of Chinese twins in the internet era whose lives take them in vastly different directions.” To confirm the results, Ms. Scott and her colleagues repeated the race in the lab, where the conditions of the males’ journey to the web could be more tightly controlled.
