Simon World is an interesting pan-Asian news blog, sort of like Instapundit for Asians, by an Australian bloke living in Hong Kong. I liked his everything you wanted to know about blogging but were afraid to ask (good links too). Particuarly this line: "Blog is an ugly word but we're stuck with it". How true. You take the globe. Spin it around. Drop some E. Um, I mean, drop the e. There, "blog".
