Today is a landmark day in my blog’s life. Please help celebrate the 100th posting on “Zai China” by doing something “meta” today. For those of you who need the reminder, “meta” is anything that references itself. For example, I just posted a 100th blog posting about the fact that this is the 100th blog posting.
And as if that wasn’t enough, I have even found another great example of “meta” here in China that I want to share with you. One of the students at school showed up with this jacket and I just about offered him money for it. It was very very cool. I tried to explain why I was so enthralled, but I think he left our conversation a bit confused about why the foreign teacher wanted a picture of his jacket.
It goes to show you that “meta” is a universal truth found in all corners of the earth. Perhaps that’s the secret to world peace. You heard it here first.
