Via Boing Boing, we learned of a great China blog called Virtual China. The post that caught Boing Boing’s eye is entitled “what’s on the BBS today: the inventiveness of farmers” and it highlights some of the “DIY projects” China’s farmers are undertaking (likely with all the free time they have thanks to a land-grab). Two of their efforts are pictured.
Virtual China describes itself thusly:
Virtual China is an exploration of virtual experiences and environments in and about China. It is also the focus of the 2006 Asia Focus research program at the Institute for the Future, a small nonprofit technology forecasting group in Palo Alto, California.
We here at Shanghaiist are fans of the future, and so we have added Virtual China to our “LINKS” list on the left column of this page.
