Chinese Bloggers: “Everybody is Somebody”

Rebecca MacKinnon has provided a good overview of the recently concluded Chinese Blogger Conference in Shanghai:

Isaac Mao in his opening keynote talked about the power of many small voices. On the web, “everybody is somebody.” What’s more, Chinese web users are increasingly reacting to events taking place in their lives, in real time, online. “We are all grassroots. We are all small voices,” he says. “The combination of all these small voices will make our society smarter.”
