Foush Interview with Blogger Deported From China
I had the chance to interview NoNeck, a blogger who was deported from China after being caught videotaping a “Free Tibet” protest. NoNeck shares his experience as he was grabbed by Chinese authorities, and forced to buy his own plane ticket home. Luckily, he was streaming live from his phone and the footage was recorded and uploaded to the web.
What was cool about this story was it was one of my earliest experiences with the power of Twitter. I heard about this on the micro-blogging site from a friend who connected me with NoNeck within hours of the incident. I had the interview up on the web before the mainstream media had gotten wind of it.
