Blogging the Japanese way

I just watched this very interesting video at the Washington Post, about Blogging Japanese Style. Very nicely done, and it gives us a good comparison between the Japanese way (more modest, audience – your friends) of blogging vs. the American (more bragging, selling yourself, audience – the world). I was also surprised to learn that Japanese is the dominant language in the blogging world, according to Technorati. 37 % of blogs are in Japanese, “only” 28 % are in English. If any other has some interesting thoughts about intercultural differences among blogs, please let me know, I would love to hear your views (Thanks for sharing the story, Erik Enger).
