When Lyn and I started the Virtual China blog back in February 2006, it served as an online notebook and promotion vehicle for an Institute for the Future program of the same name. And indeed, some of what we posted did make its way into that year’s Virtual China program. But there were also many posts that did not make it.
Fast forward two and a half years, this blog remains our online notebook. But it is no longer the blog vehicle for an IFTF program; nor are our posts exclusively focused on artifacts from “virtual” China anymore.
Virtual China (the blog) was becoming much more a reflection of how Lyn and I view the latest, often strange, Chinese objects or events. Yet, we were always struck by the uneasy feeling that we were betraying the “Virtual China” name and original mission.
So we put our heads together and reframed what we were doing (a brand refresh if you will).
