Curation & Aggregation

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Curation is the next big thing on the Internet with Pinterest being the latest media darling.

However I did live in the country, still know people who do live there, and I want to go back to visit. Heck I’m an alumni of Tsinghua University, I’ve got the Chinese New Year’s Card to prove it…
