Video hosting and sharing websites
China On TV
Mojiti has launched Chinese and English versions of its site which does not host video, but allows users to make collections of videos on other video sites, and to search other user collections and video sites.
After seeing this post, Mojiti founder Eric Feng wrote to Danwei and explained: "Our mission at Mojiti is to help users tell their own stories with any online video. We're not a video search engine - instead, we want to help users personalize video to create a more engaging viewing experience."

Classic Danwei posts
+ Korean history doesn't fly on Chinese TV screens (2007.09): SARFT puts the kibbosh on Korean historical dramas.
+ Religion and government in an uneasy mix (2008.03): Phoenix Weekly (凤凰周刊) article from October, 2007, on government influence on religious practice in Tibet.
+ David Moser on Mao impersonators (2004.10): I first became aware of this phenomenon in 1992 when I turned on a Beijing TV variety show and was jolted by the sight of "Mao Zedong" and "Zhou Enlai" playing a game of ping pong. They both gave short, rousing speeches, and then were reverently interviewed by the emcee, who thanked them profusely for taking time off from their governmental duties to appear on the show.
