   taweili writes “[1]A tweet from Shanghai Morning Newspaper’s Weibo
  account, Shanghai Government Technology committee has issued a call for
  [2]proposal to build 100 community hackerspaces with government funding
  for equipments and community managing the spaces. Hackerspaces have
  been growing rapidly in China since the the first one [3]XinCheJian was
  started in Shanghai last November as [4]reported here by CNN Go.
  Currently there are three hackerspaces in China with [5]XinCheJian in
  Shanghai, [6]Maxpace in Beijing and [7]Chaihuo in Shenzhen. It looks
  like the governments are paying attention to the trend and are getting
  into supporting (or ‘regulating’) the movement.”
