The return of Bill

Two good new China blogs by one very smart and apparently underemployed blogger:

Bill Bishop, known to Twitter users as niubi, is a savvy commentator on American financial woes, and Chinese business, Internet and politics. He is blogging again, and back with two blogs:


A blog about Internet and digital media in China. Post worth reading: Will the investment ever stop flowing into Chinese video sites?, a bearish look at the prospects of Youku, Tudou and other private companies and investments in China’s online video space.

From Bishop’s own introduction:

I already blog at Digicha about Digital Media and the Internet in China and wanted a different forum to discuss broader issues related to China, hence this blog. I did my undergraduate and graduate work in Chinese economics (it was much simpler in those days) and politics before stumbling into digital media. “Sinocism”, while not a real word, evokes how I feel about China; on the hand I love a lot about the country, and am always impressed by what goes on here; on the other hand I am skeptical of much of the hype in the current mass discourse related to China. I hope that through this blog I can provide some useful and original insight.
