For those who haven’t seen it yet, Danwei TV now has its own website here. Danwei TV is the brainchild of the authors of the excellent Chinese media blog, Danwei, and features smart, well-produced, fast moving video clips. The clip that’s up now is well worth watching: it’s on Mu Zimei, the famous, sexually outspoken blogger who brought blogs to the Chinese mainstream consciousness just a few years ago. Jeremy Goldkorn interviews Mu Zimei (real name, Li Li) in her apartment, and I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that she’s very outspoken about her sex life even when she’s not blogging! Great stuff (though I could do without the snarky (?) shots of Mu Zimei’s house slippers).
It would really be something if this format caught on so we could also watch clips produced by Chinese DIY reporters–but it might be considered too risky.
