gou-rou.comissue 23 - Anniversary Special
gou-rou.com celebrates 61 glorious years
Hello everyone! It's 2009, and that can mean only one thing -- anniversary year! It's 20 years since things happened (or didn't happen, depending on who you believe) in Beijing's beautiful Tiananmen Square. It's 60 years since the People's Republic of China was founded -- also at Tiananmen Square! That definitely happened.
Not to be outdone, we here at gou-rou.com are also celebrating our own anniversary. Yes, the 30th of September marks 61 years of continuous history for our little webzine, which stretches back before we registered the domain name or even the invention of the Internet, truly a testament to our unique cultural impact.
We'll be rolling out the features for this Very Special Edition of gou-rou.com as time progresses forwards, to coincide with each of these tremendous anniversaries, as well as any others we happen to find in the "On this day..." section of Wikipedia.
Arabella Green, gou-rou.com editor in chief.
