Expo 2010 was a great year for media exposure about Shanghai. Hundreds of journalists came to the city looking for their Shanghai topic, and a few came to me for interviews (see Media cover page). I got the opportunity to be on French TV a few times, and to be filmed for a Chinese TV. It seems like the old Shanghai theme still attracts interest as I was interviewed by Chinese Newspaper Global Times about my passion for Shanghai history and my (growing) collection of documents from that era.
The journalist got it pretty right apart from the fact that the largest share of the blog’s readers are actually in Shanghai. In any case, it is always weird to find oneself in the paper, but hopefully this will increase interest about Old Shanghai and help preserve the city.
