China to shut down blogs...

So, I just found out that China seems to be doing some mass censoring of Blogs and pretty much anything web 2.0 based. Check this article out http://www.cwrblog.net/810/china-idc-to-shut-down-bbss-and-blogs.html

It has some interesting info...and now I may have to figure out how to re-host my blog somewhere else!

T-minus 5 weeks

Most people want to know where we'll be living - we're lucky that we'll be able to stay in the company corporate apartment for the first few months. The apt. is in an area of Shanghai called "Jing'An". Jing'An refers to the name of a famous temple in the area. The Jing-An Temple is really beautiful, I visited it last year when I was in Shanghai for the first time. The whole area is actually growing really quickly and is one of the more popular areas for expats. There everything you could imagine including a huge, high end shopping center, gym and amazing Japanese grocery store. Lucky for me, those are three of my favorite things. :-)
