“This story and picture of “China’s Most Incredible Holdout” traveled around China’s blogs and the original story was lost, elaborated on, and then pieced together and rediscovered by Chinese netizens, and finally translated into English by “bridge bloggers.”

    This story and picture of “China’s Most Incredible Holdout” traveled around China’s blogs and the original story was lost, elaborated on, and then pieced together and rediscovered by Chinese netizens, and finally translated into English by “bridge bloggers.”

    See Ugotrade for a look at this story http://www.ugotrade.com (March 10th, 2007 post), and links to the “bridge blogger” and chinese stories, if you get a moment.

    The story was investigated and reconstructed again, but ultimately not verified in terms of facts and figures. The power of this picture is that it over rides the specifics!

    And, now the story of “China’s Most Incredible Holdout,” is appearing in Boing Boing and many blogs around the world in yet another incarnation. Very Interesting!

    Check it out! The owner of the China’s “hold out” house has been found! And, a pioneering “bridge blogger” has translated a long interview with him. Nice picture too!
