Now is the winter of our discontent

- Shakespeare, Richard III

For Shanghai Squared, this isn’t a winter of discontent so much as the season of low internet activity. Between Christmas and NYE most people have better things to do than log on. However, for those who have kept reading during these short cold days – thank you.

The exciting news is that come January 17th we are introducing a series of new bloggers who are going to contributes to the site on a daily basis. Amongst them is the highly talented illustrator Robin Wang who is working on a cartoon detailing the life of Haibao in a post-expo Shanghai. More details to come soon.

As for today, we have a great interview in T@lk with an English teacher. As many EFL teachers are aware, schools in Shanghai can often be shady employers. However, before this interview I’d never heard of one which required illegal teachers to run for the back door when the police came knocking.

We also have a round up of the best music of 2010 in our Feature article of the week.
