china’s top IT bloggers ::
:: a couple of days ago, Sina.com announced China’s “Top 10″ IT Bloggers for 2008. For the most part, the list was decided by netizen-vote, but the final results were ultimately determined by a panel of Sina.com judges. Either way, there are some heavy-hitting tech geeks on this list worth paying attention to (see below). Sina also announced the “most popular” IT business blog – CNNIC’s Web2.0 Research and Development blog; and the “most valuable / worthwhile” IT business blog – Microsoft’s Research Asia Pacific blog. Hat tip to Joel for linking me to this news.
