Internet

That's Beijing has become a blog!

That's Beijing magazine, is putting its content back online, in blog format, complete with comments, trackbacks, XML feeds and categories.

Here, for example, is Kaiser Kuo's column from the March issue.

Is this old media making a very smart move by getting hip with the cool new media kids? Or is this a disaster waiting to happen in the form of massive comments spam, trolls, and other blog delights?

GEEK UPDATE: Oops, the "permalinks" still need some thought: they ain't so perma. The above link does not take you to the article directly, but to an issue home page. There seems to be no way to fix that on the user end.
