So, here's a preview of what I think I'll be posting about very soon:
- A follow-up to my piece "Google Maps and Baidu Map in China". In the earlier post I shared some interesting patterns I noticed in my research on Chinese youth, compared Google's and Baidu's map services, and commented on the implications this may all have on Google Maps' ability to operate in China (according to Bloomberg here the Chinese government is still reviewing Google Maps' application for an important license). In the next post on this topic I will share some interesting things I found after reviewing the map services offered by another prominent company. For now, I'll just say it's a different story from both Baidu Map and Google Maps -- in ways that may surprise you. The earlier post provides some key context for the next one, if you missed it you can find it here.
- An example highlighting how being "inside" or "outside" a culture can impact certain types of research.
- Another post providing more of a peek into how I conduct research in China.
- Photos highlighting a side of Shanghai very different from the flashy buildings and high speed railroad stations that more commonly make the news.
- A post on food or beer. Or maybe both.
- Some other things, but not totally convinced to do them yet so...
