I’ve arrived safely in Beijing! Not really tired, so here I am blogging at 4am/4pm eastern.
Thought this would be as good a time as any for a post on an issue that I’ve pondered for the last few weeks: Will it link? Will I be able to access many of the sites that I use everyday, both personally and professionally?
I knew Facebook and Twitter would be down for the count, but several others caught me by surprise. Here’s the rundown.
3:17am Beijing/ 3:17pm Eastern – Gmail WIN
3:33am Beijing – Slideshare WIN
3:37am Beijing – Hootsuite FAIL
3:38am Beijing – Seesmic FAIL
3:52am Beijing – YouTube FAIL
3:52am Beijing – Vimeo FAIL
3:58am Beijing – Blogger FAIL
4:00am Beijing – WordPress WIN!!!!!!
Most disappointing part of this: Posterous FAIL – This means no posts at Socially Diverse – http://sociallydiverse.posterous.com.
No worries though. Thankfully I can share thoughts here.
