Blacklane Car Service To Launch In Chinese On Baidu-Backed Qunar
Blacklane founders Frank Steuer and current CEO Jens Wohltorf.Blacklane founders: Frank Steuer and current CEO Jens Wohltorf. German chauffeur service Blacklane will be launching a Mandarin portal on Baidu-backed travel site Qunar in mid January. The partnership comes as Baidu makes a large strategic investment in US car-hailing giant Uber, as well as an investment in local Chinese car service YongChe this August. Despite their close proximity in the market, Blacklane CEO Jens Wohltorf insists that Uber, YongChe and Blacklane have specific strengths, and will not be directly competitive. “We have a pretty well differentiated product to Uber,” Mr. Wohltorf told Technode, “I’m not very concerned about this, we can learn a lot from Uber and I’m sure they can learn a lot from us.” Unlike Uber’s on-demand model, Blacklane services are ordered at least an hour in advance.

This article is by Johan van de Ven, whose undergraduate dissertation at Oxford University examined the effects of factors such as environmental movements, diplomacy and social media on air pollution policy-making in China. In a study conducted from June to December 2013, I quantitatively and qualitatively examined a variety of social media and mainstream media articles related to air pollution  and compared the results with government statements and policy making events, with the aim of answering the question: Was social media primarily responsible for government action on air pollution in China?

Inaugural National Cyberspace Public Awareness Week Urges “Rule of Law” and a “Harmonious Internet”
UC The Internet As reported by Qian Long Web Beijing, the city of Beijing just concluded a week-long, first-ever National Cyberspace Public Awareness Week, with the theme Encourage the Spirit of Rule of Law, Build a Harmonious Internet somewhat mixing the ideologies of Xi (rule of law) and Hu (“harmony”) at the same time. Since 2003, when Hu became a “full” PRC leader (after being president), the Internet has, except for a brief time at the start of his presidency, been increasingly ruled by a myriad of regulations. Xi, always in favour of rule of law (or rule by law?), has from the very start of his presidency pointed out that “the Internet is not a place where the rule does not apply”. Officialspeak leaders included the head of the Chinese Public Security Ministry’s Internet Security Bureau, Gu Jianguo, who pointed out in his speech that “the space of the Internet is a space of sovereignty” (the concept of national sovereignty on the Internet was a major issue of content in the recent Wuzhen sum...
