Saturday began bright and early with a trip to Taipei where I was speaking at blogger conference at Huashan Culture Park. The park was a former winery from Japanese times, and is now a venue for performing arts and conferences. Ironically, the park was in the news that morning with accusations of bid-rigging.
David Reid, who was there with Scott Sommers representing the Taiwan English blogosphere, snapped this photo of me speaking. I gave my talk in Chinese, the first time I've ever done that. I don't think I did a very good job, too nervous and aware that my audience wanted to go to lunch. Basically I just gave a short outline of how I saw the English blogworld, what my blog was about, and why me of all people was there. Still, they were a good audience, supportive, and willing to laugh at my jokes. Once in a while.
