Chinese blogs can drive quick public action – Virtual China

From Virtual China (link):

Li Guozhong, a Hunan professional photographer, was touring rural villages a few days ago with 3 colleagues when he was introduced to a dying 12 year girl with septicaemia, a potentially life-threatening infection in which large amounts of bacteria are present in the blood. Li snapped a few striking shots of her condition and posted them on with an appeal to “save a dying 12 year old girl.” According to Li’s post, the girl’s poor rural family had only enough money for 10 days of treament at a local hospital in the fall of 2005. When this failed to cure the blood poisoning, the skin of her leg began to rot away — and somehow her shinbone broke through the rotting skin.

There the post and photos were seen by a Daqi blog editor. Within 2 hours he had a Daqi blog opened for Li Guozhong and prominently placed on the main page for publicity.
