Links 20 October 2008

Many thanks to Byron of Textura Design for hosting last night’s blogger party in Taipei. It was great to see some old and new faces there. IslaFormosa has a summary of the event. There is so much great stuff on Taiwan blogs this week that I have broken the links up into two sections. First, politics…

Next photography, travel, movies and more.

Events: The Kaohsiung Film Festival is on from 24 October to 6 November. Bike Smiling is on Sunday 26 October. Meet at the Ren’ai Road gate of Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall at 3:00pm. The Daniel Pearl Music Day is on Saturday 25 October at the Taipei Artists Village. And don’t forget the Bushman’s Blogtoberfest is happening in Hukou on Saturday 25 October.

Media: Feature in the Taipei Times by Loa Iok-sin on the Assembly Law. Taipei Times editorial on media freedom. Steven Crook writes about religious tourism. Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty seeks to advance the debate on abolishing the death penalty.

Also check my shared items at Google Reader and Taiwan delicious links for more Taiwan links.

  1. I wonder if it would be possible to begin a ‘Draft Poagao for Xindian City Council’ movement? Maybe your site could serve as campaign hq?

  2. There was a pretty good Jazz Festival going on down in Taichung this past weekend as well, as far as events go. Always seems to be something happening during the weekends down here.

  3. Prince Roy, I’d vote for him, if I could vote.

    Chris, sorry I am not in touch with everything that is happening in Taizhong. If you let me know about any events in advance I can include them in the events section.
