Much has been made of the decline of the print medium and the rise of new media. Some have said they are mutually exclusive.
But a two-day forum that started on Thursday in Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province in Southwest China, offered a clue that the two can indeed integrate and even complement each other.
China may be a few steps ahead of us as more and more users in Asia seem to have a growing trust in blogs, and newsrooms that are willing to adapt more quickly to new media tools like blogging. Especially with a broader cross section of mainstream society using blogging tools than in the United States.
