I spent several hours over the course of the last couple days compiling a retrospective look on 60 years of the People’s Republic of China, and after getting 1949 to 2003 down in a draft, I realized I didn’t want the site to go the way of the still blocked Peking Duck and Danwei, and so have scraped it for now. Sigh.
However, I should give it up to the PRC for putting on a hell of a parade. I only managed to catch a bit of it yesterday via the CCTV link I posted the day before. Between browser conflicts and choppy streaming (even in China), it was a bit too much to bear. However, what I did see seemed damn impressive.
This was all the more confirmed when watching news shooter Dan Chung’s well-crafted, and fantastically visual video of the event:
