The Upcoming Chinese Blogger Conference

The Chinese Blogger Conference would be held from Nov.5 to 6. Chinese Bloggers are very enthusiastic at the first-ever meeting with their online friends. Many of them are already in Shanghai, where the conference located. They would discuss a wide range of issues such as Blog, Podcast and RSS etc. Also our director of GVO, Rebecca MacKinnon would be also on this occasion, moderating a panel called “Blogging Across Borders ”.
