Panda Punchers – #4 – Special Debate Coverage
Gotta hand it to Stan for staying on top of this. I have pretty much lost interest in the “debates”as they have just only shown the lowest of lows on both sides of the aisles in terms of mud slinging. however, as i began writing about over a year ago, U.S. politics is something everyone needs to pay attention to in so far as to how it relates to China.

7 writers sue Website over copyrights
In what looks like another step in the right direction, a number of popular writers have sued Beijing Sursen Electronic Technology for developing a website that displays their content in full. As a blogger, I know all to well that people have taken liberty with some of the things I have published, and it is good to see that now Chinese writers are taking Chinese websites to task.

Wanna Buy a Truck in Nanning?
Youtube is an absolute treasure trove of clips, and this one from a truck dealership in Nanning is a classic example. All quips aside about the choice of music, what I find interesting about this is that the manager of this store looked to Youtube as a way to advertise to foreigners to sell his/ her trucks. The target market is limited, but even one sale will justify the investment in time it took him to cut the video and upload it.
