Some July Links

AB报 ( See the front pages of a slew of Chinese print newspapers. Pretty cool! Definitely worth exploring more.

饭否 ( the Chinese Twitter clone. the Taiwanese Twitter clone. [Twitter]

Sun Tzu’s Art of War: the whole thing in English, plus commentary, plus the ability to link to or comment any individual passage. Now if only it was in Chinese as well….

  1. […] And speaking of newspapers, ABBao is a site that archives the front pages of over 100 national newspapers in image form, browsable on the internet. Sounds like a great site to while away a muggy summer morning without having to walk to the newspaper stand. Hopefully they’ll add the Shanghai Daily soon. (Thanks John!) […]

  2. AB报 is a very useful source.
    But since last week some of the newspapers (like the 人民日报) have only extract pages of the full edition. Some other newspapers made only a brief stay on this website (like the 新华日报 and its 2 editions).
    I read mostly the short and easy “sociocultural” articles from 厦门商报 and 今日早报

  3. Thanks, i like ABBAO much !

  4. ABBAO is pretty cool- I think it could be interesting to take a whole slew of Chinese newspaper front pages and cover a XXXL t-shirt with the prints, kinda cheesy ghetto-fabulous. And then have a big icy chain with a spinning medallion with the CBA logo…yeah…
