Taiwan: the death of twblog.net

Inertia announced in his blog that twblog.net has officially died because the domain name has been took by other internet company. Bloggers under blog.twblog.net would be affected. He explains the current situation that “in taiwan blogosphere, it is simple to be independent, but to maintain that independence alone is difficult…” (zh)

    This is indeed a shame. I really liked the drupal engine and layout of the site, plus Taiwan really needs a peer-edited site like this one. The real pity is that blogging in Taiwan is still associated w/the likes of Wretch.cc and pchome.com–the absolute dregs of teenie-bopper fandom and vanity pics. Too late now I suppose, but I would gladly have sponsored the site with donations of money and time had I known the situation had become so dire. Anyway, RIP twblog.net. You will be missed.
