Met with Sarah Schafer

In the cold Beijing morning, I waked up – ealier than avarage, and went to the Yansha (Lufthansa Center) to meet Sarah. Sarah is a nice journalist. She created a lot of reports on China for Newsweek. Among them, my favorite one is the Microsoft Culture Revolution – the cover story with a portrait of Bill Mao. After check Starbucks at the nearby hotel, the one at the Pacific Center (they were all closed), we finally settled down at Bookworm Library.

I met three friends three times at the Bookworm. It is my most preferred location in Beijing to meet friends.

I’d rather keep the content of the talk (in journalist term) “off the record”. I learnt that “off record” means the listener need to pretend that he/she heard nothing. :-)

  1. Hi Jian Shuo,

    My name is Jeremy Hudson. I am a student at The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in the United States.

    Myself and five other students are researching the usage of blogs in China. We have come across your name many times during our research as one of the most famous bloggers in China.

    Our class will be in Shanghai in March for a few days. I am writing to ask if it would be possible for our group to meet with you to discuss your experience of being a blogger in China, and other questions that we have regarding blogging in China, on March 15, preferably in the late afternoon/evening or anytime on March 20 or March 22?

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Best regards,
