« Corporate Responsibility for Tech Companies | Main | China at WSIS: Cisco beware! »

November 15, 2005



I have a question about the Chinese dissident bloggers (group 3): How many of them are really interested in providing valuable political information and how many are just dissidents for the sake of publicity? I read Wozy Yin's article in the Wired and was kind of disappointed as it just seems to say what westerners want to read, but hardly contains any new information. Unfortunately, I only read very little Chinese, so I can't verify what Chinese "dissidents" really blog about. In my opinion, the article in the Wired just stressed all the dissidents' stereotypes ("even if my blog is censored 100 times, I will write it for the 101st"), but rather seemed to be a poor example for constructive political blogging in China. What do you think?
