Taiwan: Bloggers Festival

Taiwan Bloggers BoF, the biggest blogger festival in Taiwan is about to take place on April 14, 2007.

BoF was first held in 2005, and named for “Birds of a feather”. In 2006, hundreds of bloggers participated in the 2nd BoF, in which a talk was given by Rebecca MacKinnon, co-founder of GVO, to share her experience in the media, why she left CNN and joined the family of Global Voice Online.

In the upcoming 3rd meeting, Leonard, the acting coordinator of Global Voices Chinese Team, will give a briefing at the session: Citizen Journalism(zh). He will introduce what GV Chinese is and how bloggers in Taiwan can take part in this project. Other organizations such as Peepo (a platform organized by Taiwan Public Television Service) and Wikinews will introduce their status, too. Several international bloggers in Taiwan will also be invited to provide their points of view at this session.
