Problems Accessing WordPress in China!

I should have known this before I left to China; WordPress blogs are blocked in here! Luckily somebody adviced me on a way to cope with this issue and it turns out that there are countless services that provide proxy sites to bypass the problem. I am currently able to access my blog by the use of Dtor.org. Unfortunately creating links and inserting pictures does not work, but I will find a way!

Because I was not able to access my blog the last weeks I have been writing about my experiences elsewhere.

On my class blog:

But I was also invited by Gang Lu, the owner of the MObinoDE blog to be a guest writer for him. I will continue to occasionally blog for MObinoDE during my trip:

I will copy-paste the postings I did on these blogs later this evening.

A brief update on what I am currently doing:

– Today I had a meeting with Ian McGuinn and Elias Glenn from JL McGregor & Company. Really nice guys and interesting discussion. Also I can make use of there extensive database on some of the companies I am doing research on! So tomorrow after my interview at Giant Interactive I will work at the JL McGregor office!

– After the morning meeting with Ian and Elias I visited Spill Group Asia today. Marc van der Chijs shared some of his insightfull thoughts with me, it was a pleasure and of great help for my thesis to meet him. Furthermore I met with Thijs Bosma who besides showing me around the office also had some helpfull insights to share! Thanks guys!

Will post more soon, I am out to have some excellent Shanghai French Connection road-bbq, did not eat yet and its 22:15?!

    Best is to get a good VPN like Witopia, many geeks here use it. It sets you back USD 40, but you can surf the web like you’re outside China. Sites like YouTube are often faster with Witopia than without it. Of course you can also use it to surf anonymously once you’re back home.
