Blog is a community. By referencing each other, the network of hobbies or information is exchanged in a way that is not possible in traditional website. I am always amazed by how other blogs referenced my site. Here are some interesting references.

Bamaster, an active participator in BBS (with 2036 posts) quoted my article of Stop MSN Messenger Spam as his signiture

Robert Scoble mentioned:

Wow, did you know that Bill Gates was murdered by the media in China? Turned out to be a hoax, but it had Microsoft employee Jian Shuo Wang worried.

I’d like to meet Jian someday. His weblogs about life in Shanghai are great.

Well. I am very hornorred to be mentioned in his wonderful blog.

Bryan wrote to me days before:

I wanted to write you and tell you how much I enjoy the information you have provided on your web site. I hope you keep it going for a very long time.

This piece is also interesting, by G:

I am sure you have received a lot of email from overseas and helped a lot of visitors to Shanghai. Shanghai Tourism should hire you as minister of tourism.

You are well qualified for this position. You can travel to the world and promote Shanghai.
