It was twenty years ago today

Filed under: — Alan Baumler @ 6:26 am

If three times is a trend then there is now a trend of historical liveblogging about China. CDT is doing a liveblog of the Tiananmen demonstrations for the 20th anniversary.  Liveblogs of the Younghusband Expedition and the Boxer Uprising are still going on. What will be next?

    I am not sure what exactly you call as “liveblogging”, but at my blog site, Standoff at Tiananmen, I have been running a daily recount of the the student movement in 1989.

    Last year, I did a daily retracing of the New York Times report of the same event. Those blog posts can be accessed by the “NYT Archives” label on the site. I believe that was more comprehensive than what the CDT is currently doing.

    I’d like to see a liveblog from the long march!
