This week I will be heading over to China to take part in a pretty interesting trip. I’m heading out to the inaugural China 2.0 Tour which is shaping up to be one of the most interesting opportunities to learn about startups and high-tech in China I’ve ever heard of. I’ll be in Beijing (Nov 10-12), Shanghai (13-14) and Guangzhou (15-16). The trip is being organized by The China Business Network, Web2Asia and CNReviews, and is sponsored by Edelman Digital China. Apart from anything else they have assembled an amazing bunch of bloggers and participants for the trip. I’ll be writing about the trip and what I find in due course, but I’d like UK and other European startups to consider me as one of their ambassadors for the duration. If you want to lean more about the tech business in China, let me know and I’ll do my best to find out for you.

Plus, over the few weeks, I’m looking to re-play our pretty successful experiment over the summer and publish a few guest posts from anyone out there who wants to get in touch and pitch me an idea for a post. In addition I’m bringing on another occasional, hopefully regular, contributor. Basheera Khan is a technology journalist, former journalism lecturer and now blogger/freelance journalist based in London. She has a great CV of contributions to major titles, and even started her own tech news site about tech companies in Wales. I’m really looking forward to her contribution.

    I’m interested in finding IT related work in China, does anyone have any websites they recommend other than the usual china.monster etc? There must be companies in China looking to hire UK skilled IT professionals, but I am struggling to find websites that are dedicated to this market, or at least, websites of any value/use that aren’t just data mining. Thanks!

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for offering to take a look for us!
    We are very interested in learning more about online reputation management and self branding in China as it seems like the next sensible step for further developing the LookupPage business which is currently available in Europe and the US.

    Looking forward to your feedback, Thanks!
