Jeff Ooi, Ferryman extraordinaire

Jeff Ooi announced today his new Chinese-language blog, 摆渡人 (in English: “The Ferryman”), quite possibly the first Chinese language blog in Malaysia. Jeff is launching this project explicitly to build bridges with the Chinese language blogosphere – he explains in his post that the blog is a result of the promise he and Issac Mao (Shanghai-based blogger and technology investory) made to each other that they should do something to build bridges between the Malaysian and Chinese blogospheres. What a great inspiration for all of us hoping to build new bridges and start new projects based on the ideas we shared at Global Voices! And what a beautiful name for a blog designed to bridge gaps between two nations and cultures. Good luck, Jeff!
