Ever wonder what your favorite China bloggers look and sound like in the flesh? No? Well, what if they were wearing a hard hat and talking into a boom microphone?

– The Olympic Stadium designed Herzog & de Meuron
It’s worth watching. Shanghaiist loves guerilla journalism like this (when done well). The possibilities are seemingly endless. Any blogger with the bandwidth and initiative can start up a mini media conglomerate that can be read, seen and heard throughout the world. Heady times, indeed.
Shanghaiist is interested in hearing from local podcasters and video bloggers who might want to team up. Email us at tips(at)shanghaiist.com.
