A lot has happened in the few weeks since my last posting. For one thing, I've created a Yahoo! Groups site
) which is, for all practical purposes, a mirror of my Blogger blog. Most importantly, it allows subscribers in China to access my Blogger content (and my Yahoo! Groups site will eventually be published in both English and Chinese). It also provides a place for me to park various files, bookmarks, even photos. For example, my bio
can be accessed via http://tinyurl.com/3y3vt
(with a bio in Chinese to be uploaded to the "Files" section next week) and a feature which appeared in The Los Angeles Times
can be accessed at http://tinyurl.com/2zvnp
. I've also created an AvantGo channel
) for those of you so inclined to read CSA
anytime, anywhere. For what it's worth, IMHO content-rich blogs make good reading on a PDA and smartphone; matter of fact, I'd say that blogs are a natural fit for these form factors.
From the content creation perspective (versus content delivery), I've decided to split into two blogs, China Sourcing Alert
) for commentary on newsworthy items (with a publication frequency of about 1-2 times per week) and China Sourcing Monitor
) for in-depth commentary (with a publication frequency of about 6-8 times per year). In the past three weeks I've also met with three of the five CMM5 systems integrators based in China, and with the IT outsourcing heads of China's largest software company. Exciting times in China!
