Observations on the mainland media


Fang Kecheng’s blog 绝版青春 (“Youth out of print”)

Fang Kecheng (方可成), a graduate student in journalism at PKU, keeps a blog with a focus on Chinese media and social issues.

Fang started his blog on Ycool in 2006 and moved to a standalone server on October 4, 2008. A redesign earlier this month (compare to the earlier version). The new layout makes the blog’s top-level categories prominent: Observations on China, Civil Society, Media, life, Film, music, and books, and Travel.

From the subject matter alone, it’s easy to see why Fang’s blog appeals to us at Danwei. His well-sourced, carefully-argued posts make it a required RSS subscription.

Fang may be familiar to Danwei readers from his compilation of a list of countries that have “hurt the feelings of the Chinese people.” Other recommended posts:
