Blogging is big among the French
By Thomas Crampton International Herald Tribune

PARIS Already famed for angry labor strikes and philosophical debates in smoke-filled cafés, the French have now brought their passions online to become some of the world's most intensive bloggers.

Blogging Down in China
By Shaun Rein
What marketing executives would ignore a market with a customer base the size of Britain and Canada combined? Not many, if they wanted to keep their jobs.

users can exert on their companies' bottom lines.

Could HPC.co and similar sites be exerting any influence on the UK economy?
