The Best Tuangou Ever, a Ticket for Noah’s Ark

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Blocked Hotmail a Hot Search in Google.cn

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

The Chinese firewall had an active day. Twitter blocked, Flickr blocked, Microsoft’s new search engine Bing.com blocked.
In general the average Chinese user won’t give a a hoot. Twitter….. Flickr….. and that pancake search engine.
It’s mostly the foreigners here that will have to find other ways to express themselves. Should be good for productivity, although […]

Now go and read the Chinese bbs yourself to really find out what’s going on in China.

ZonaEuropa’s Title Tag Changed to EastSpitjWestNorth

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

Mystery solved, it was a typo and it has been corrected, see comment by ESWN.
While getting updated on the latest in China I visited the always very informative EastSouthWestNorth blog to read the translated essay by Huangfu Ping.

I don’t know the exact details but I did a quick search to see what info is available. It seems the commenter isn’t the only […]
