I’m mostly posting this for my own future reference, but if you’d like to get a feeling for the Chinese expat experience, or how to do business in China in general, chinageeks.org has an awesome collection of blogs about China.

Because I’m into motorsports, and I’d like to get a donor-cycle, I’ve also been spending a fair amount of time on the forums at mychinamoto.com.

Also, I found a Linux Users Group here in Beijing, and even a Hackerspace! My lack of Chinese might be an obstacle at the Hackerspace, but if I have some time I’ll go check it out.
