The article focuses on the popularity of blogs in China. The country's first movie about a blogger, A Hard Day's Night, was launched in Beijing in 2005. The 50-minute film tracks a blogger's night gone wrong, when he was picked up for robbery, mistaken for a famous thespian, then a music critic. Blogs are revolutionary in that they are the most widely available--and most widely used--form of free expression China has ever seen.
