Architect Ma Yansong Sells Out

Beijing's biggest media darling architect, Ma Yansong (马岩松), is now pimping stainless steel stovetops on Gong Ti Bei Lu (工体北路) billboards. He is hyped on the billboard as the "Designer of Canada's Marilyn Monroe Tower." The ad is for Fotile (方太), a domestic Chinese kitchen appliance manufacturer.

Check out Jeremy Goldkorn's interview of Ma during the Danwei TV days.

A Million Views, the New York Times and Other Self Promotion


Over the past weekend, the New York Times website posted a piece about Sexy Beijing.

Around the same time, our very first episode, "Looking for Double Happiness," busted through one million views on Youtube.

We were pleased that James Fallows of the Atlantic Monthly wrote us up on his blog recently.

Sexy Beijing was also featured on the PBS show "Global Watch" which aired last week across the U.S. Apparently, you can watch the episode on their website.

In London, at the Victoria & Albert museum, some of our videos are being presented as part of the China Design Now exhibit.

And we won a Tudou.com Oscar for "Best Documentary".

And a good site of security where learning.

More exciting self promotion coming soon!
