Wordpress.com Unblocked in China ?

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Well, it seems that the wordpress.com website is still unblocked but the sub domains are again unavailable. What a pity.
Yet another blog service is accessible in China. Not so long ago it were the blogspot blogs that had the honour of passing the great firewall unharmed.
Wordpress.com, another host for blogs, is (for now) available. Curiously […]

Cartoons and Bureaucrats

Saturday, September 16th, 2006

A small little tidbit of bureaucrat reality I found in an article that was actually about a newsconference about the eased restrictions on access to the mainland market for Hong Kong’s film and television industry. (sorry, long sentence)
Zhao Shi, deputy director of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (aka SARFT), told the […]

What do Chinese Search for in Google

Thursday, September 7th, 2006

Since March 2006 Google has again added China to their monthly zeitgeist.

Zeitgeist is described by Google as:
a cumulative snapshot of interesting queries people are asking – some over time, some within country domains, and some on Google.com – that perhaps reveal a bit of the human condition.
The queries show trends and are not […]

Chinese Cities Compared Using Google Trends China

Tuesday, August 8th, 2006

Google Trends is a relatively new tool. Launched in May 2006 it gives insight in what people all over the world are searching for. Not in absolute numbers but by using graphs to show a trend.

Google Trends analyzes a portion of Google web searches to compute how […]

Gmail Technical Difficulties in China

Friday, August 4th, 2006

It gets a bit of a nuisance using gmail in China.

Instead of operating as it should, it regularly shows the message “We’re experiencing difficulties that may prevent your chats from being sent.”
This is a bit of a white lie, as at such moments I can’t read emails or send any. I am […]

The latest numbers from CNNIC (China Internet Network Information Center) about internet usage in China show that usage is rising faster than before. CNNIC says that China now (July 2006) has 123 Million users. That’s 12 million more than the last survey.

Linese.com is China’s attempt at the online learning experience. Launched a couple of days ago it’s time for a review.
Linese.com Review
Well that’s what I thought before, but I learned from a comment on the Peking Duck that it’s actually a private backed venture so I am not going to waste much time on […]

Yahoo Answers on China

Monday, June 26th, 2006

I stumbled on Yahoo Answers (a service where visitors can ask questions and others provide the answers) a week ago and searched for questions on China.

It’s a small zeitgeist
There are business questions:
E.g. How can I find cheap products or I need an agent for x?
There are practical questions:
E.g. Where can I find sheet music […]

Shanghai Laundry

MI 3 and Laundry
The always amazing SARFT (State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, search for it on Google and you’ll find more highlights of this small club that decides what is appropriate to view in China) is not so happy yet with the new movie of T. Cruise, MI3.
It was filmed for […]
