Accidental Fame and the Chinese HFSE

It's been over a year since I last updated this HFS blog, and I hate to admit that I've been busy with work and haven't taken much time to read into any news related to HFS in China.

However, a few months back I was interviewed for SoasRadio's Podcast, "Tales from the OtherNets" about HFS in China. It's a wonderful episode, so if you have the time, go and listen to the full podcast here.

Accidental fame online can mean anything from doxing and cyber bullying to becoming a meme or having a video of yourself go viral. In this episode we have a few stories of this from Indonesia and South Korea and finally talk to Vincent Capone -- who runs a blog on Human Flesh Search -- talks about the phenomenon in China.
