Hi, I am Portnoy Zheng, a Taiwanese. Right now my larger part of attention is on building a new Chinese science media “PanSci.tw”. Besides that, I am also the project manager of “Nomad Green“, which is a Mongolian citizen media that focus on environmental issues in Mongolia. In GV, I am a humble contributor and the editor of Global Voices in Chinese. Contact me if you have any question about Project Lingua, GV Chinese, Nomad Green in Mongolia, Taiwan(of course) or other interesting ideas(highly welcome!)
Check my personal blog in Traditional Chinese and my rarely-updated English blog here. Or maybe you want to follow my twitter here, plurk here.
