Bill Powell, an American married to a native from Shanghai moves to the developing suburbs of the Chinese mega-city. Out at New Songjiang he becomes part of the Short March, a move of middle class Chinese out of the expensive, cramped and polluted cities to the modern suburbs.

“They have sold me protected and DRM-full CDs at unreasonable prices, they have threatened, harassed and fined friends around the world for having freely downloaded and shared music, they have made it next to impossible but for a selected few artists to ever make it on the music scene, they have sold their soul not to the greatest and most innovative music talent but to the untuned sound of their own wallets.

Somehow I stumbled upon this tumblelog. I think it was via Soup where you can scoll on and on and on to see what users of Soup tumblelogs have just created. I saw one picture and was curious to find out more. The structure reminded me of my own tumblelog. Next I detected the familiar “Dashboard” of tumblr at the top right corner.
I decided to follow this asimko because there are lots of interesting entries.
Listened to Chaos Radio Express this morning when I was walking the dog. It was about web design 2.0 and host Tim Pritlove had two developers of Soup.io as guests. They talked about Ruby on Rails and about their tumble log.
I thought I might give it a try and connected it to my tumblr feed.
