The message in the photo appeared on the screen of “a” unnknown friend’s laptop while surfing the net at “a” unknown eating establishment in Beijing.

Some context: Here’s an example of what usually happens. In order to use the free WiFi at Starbucks in Beijing, I have to type my mobile phone number on the Starbucks WiFi page and then Starbucks texts me a WiFi code to use. At that point, both the user (me) and the location (Starbucks) are “a” known.
