Hao told me that Isaac will deliver a Blog speech on Nov 15, 2002 in Shanghai. It is interesting and I have planned to meet him there.
Isaac is very active in online education and any new tech. He owns www.isaacmao.com and cnblog.org. The later has become very popular in bloggers in China. I heard of him via my friend Yizhong at 4 years ago as the CEO of Tangram Co. Later, I found his articles on media and it seems a lot of my friends know him. :-) I am going to meet him for the first time after knowing his name for 4 years.
Regarding the topic, I am not completely sure what he will be talking about. I am writing my own blog, but I don’t think blog is something that innovative. I doubt it will bring revolution to the web, as some media said.
Actually, it really depends. Just as Email is not revolutionary in itself, but the adoption created a new era of application. Browser itself is simple, but it is another killer application. Blog itself is a simple idea, but the speed it dumps the thoughts will eventurally form a new era of information. Who knows.
