Another benchmark for the vibrant Chinese blogsphere, key bloggers and big names have come together to form Memedia, home to a collectively-written weekly roundup of the biggest stories from the Chinese blogsphere. Writes Virtual China's Lyn Jeffery:
Coming from the combination of three terms, Me/Meme/Media. Memedia will provide interesting things, important things, diverse things, for us to enjoy together….
Here's a translation of Memedia's third weekly issue:
How do you steal data from a monitored computer cased in lead? You can be sure there are bad eggs willing to help you to sort it out! Google remains castrated, blogs Ken Wong at GSeeker, for terms like Deng Xiaoping and secretary of a municipal committee of the CPC in Shanghai have disappeared from Google search results. Blogspot once again cannot be visited, although there are still ways to visit the site, and is it possible for Google.cn PR to resolve the blocking?
我们在这闹腾Me Media（草根媒体），不知在大洋的彼方，这早已成为生活的一部分。荷兰则有更有趣的“无策划、无主持、自行组织的在线及线下”的unDEAF活动。但是谈到网络开放与可访问性，Mozilla如是说。而GTalk和msn, yahoo, ICQ, QQ等IM的互通，现在也终于可以做到了（带套访问）。国内令人无语的”备案”，本想取经的美国则决定：“政治博客无需向政府登记” ，不过个人Blogger并不安生，甚至受到死亡威胁 ，看来哪里都有坏蛋 。
The conscience and backbone of the society won’t be broken, while everyone in the country keeps silent, the whole world is paying attention to this. And Zola, the Blogger hero is in the frontier, reporting the story about the Nail house in Chongqing. Is an independent blogger the same as a Citizen Journalist? Herock suggested that Independent Blogger + Professional training = Citizen Journalism, while from the foreigners’ point of view, there’s still a long way to go. And though 24-processes filtered pure water is good, isn’t natural spring water with plenty of minerals even better?
[周曙光和吴苹] zola如他自称的那样，他是一个凭直觉做事的愤青，他居然从湖南坐了两天两夜火车到了重庆，试图以Blogger的身份报道 “最牛钉子户”事件，虽然他缺乏专业的新闻知识，他凭一张与最牛维权户的女主人合影的照片居然引起广泛关注，以至于走在重庆被陌生的重庆居民认出来，居然成功的实现了自己的目的：一夜成名。他果然被《南方都市报》采访报道了，而且被国内外众多媒体记者联系上。Zola终于实现了自己此行的部分目的 。当然，要来一份人物专访也还有很多办法。看来2007年特色blogger的赞助资金已经入手地十拿九稳了。他还被网友主动要求赞助他在重庆的行动，并且得到1900多元的赞助，提供赞助的有北京的网友，有深圳的不留名人士，甚至有从重庆郊区赶来见上一面只为赞助Zola的中年人，还有黑龙江的不知名的网友，甚至有日本美国德国的华人朋友。 这些人中有些是中文Blogger，有些是陌生人，一个普通青年的冲动行为，一个自我娱乐顺便娱乐大众的非典型愤青，居然能够引起这么大的反响，有上百篇热情的blogpost在热情地支持和讨论着的zola，不能不让人相信把政治变得娱乐化才是最好的传播方式，难免让人考虑个人媒体的影响力， 中国的个人媒体从此将进入公众视线？
Since China Telecom's postpay business drew back, it's been complaining about a postponed 3G license. China Telecom is dicing on making a reconfiguation plan, and some people are betting that China Unicom will be dismemebered, which might just be a rumour, but not that it matters. In any case, money just goes from the right pocket to the left pocket, no need to get outraged. Taobao.com will probably charging sellers soon, and Bumian provides some good suggestions for this, which are similar to QQ's fee. Mai Tian reminds people about the renren.com bubbles.Twitter is still on the top list for this week. More and more people chatting there, and you can even see what people from over the world are doing right now through their map. Meanwhile similar applications on the mainland are emerging in larger numbers.
It's funny that those chief governors are pushing themselves forward, from Wu Shulin to Long Xinmin then Zhang Hongsen. What they're saying is confusing, they may just be following internal instructions. Unfortunately, in the era of Citizen Media, there are no secrets, and once exposed, they become jokes. As for the animals, they're not that much better off than human beings. The three living conditions of seal babies from Blogbus blogger 24hour reveals the fickleness of the world，that it was quite difficult for them to care about their distribution. It is definitely a great display to make Panda feces gifts.Robert could not control his vocal chords, as he was eager to say: Jerry, hope is a good thing. Why? Because there will always be some people who treat themselves cruelly, that apparently no matter how heavy work gets, we should learn to be masters of our own hearts and minds. ‘To learn and then have occasion to practise what you've learned.’ To learn means to go to school, to practise is to review. Is that so? It appears that we've been lied to by those people who have been living through teaching for too long. However, they may not even be conscious of their faults.
Odds and ends of this week. An Andy Lau's fan, a girl who has been chasing him for 18 years, and her father committed suicide by drowning himself in the sea. Is she suffering from psychological illness? In the era of entertaining ourselves to death, it looks like normal whatever happens.
