USE THIS TAG: cn_jp_dialog
We've had some Sino-Japanese-U.S. email exchanges going on to discuss the best way to foster a rational discussion on the latest Chinese-Japanese tensions. Eventually a group blog and/or aggregator may be set up but we agreed that probably the best way to start is through a system of technorati and del.icio.us tagging.
So here's the plan: If you are posting something on your blog about Chinese-Japanese tensions, Sino-Japanese history debates, and related issues (or if you're uploading related photos to the web), please give it the following tag in del.icio.us, Flickr, Furl, and/or Technorati: cn_jp_dialog
(Further instruction: to add the technorati tag to your blog post, please add the following HTML to any post you want included:
<a href="http://technorati.com/tag/cn_jp_dialog" rel="tag">cn_jp_dialog</a> )
If you tag your material under one or all of those systems, it will appear on this page: http://www.technorati.com/tag/cn_jp_dialog
Chinese bloggers have been pioneering the use of tagging as a way to talk about issues – especially politically sensitive ones. After the SMTH bulletin board at Tsinghua university was shut down, Chinese bloggers used the SMTH tag to share information and views about what happened.
