Farewell, SmartBeijing
By Oct 21, 2015 SmSh
Yesterday, we carried out the difficult decision to shutter our sister website SmartBeijing after three years. From Morgan: "For the past three years or so, it's been our pleasure at to cover Beijing music, culture, nightlife, dining, drinking, esoteric noise art, and giant fucking hamburgers. Today, we say goodbye. Regrettably, the cool circumstance of modern love, warfare, and business is you've got to make money to survive. And we didn't really make any. Alas. Maybe we should have tried to sell ads? Damn. Hindsight, 20/20."

Much respect to Morgan, Josh, and the whole team up there for providing some of the most in-depth, well-written, and entertaining content in Beijing. We'll keep the SmartBeijing articles and party photos up forever, so if you ever travel to Beijing, make sure to have a look.

Rest assured, SmartShanghai is not going anywhere. Thank you to everyone who supported or participated in the SmartBeijing experiment, and again, massive thanks to Morgan and Josh for writing content so interesting that even people who didn't live in Beijing -- who perhaps had never even been there -- checked SmartBeijing regularly because the stories were just that good.

    wow that is so sad to hear.
    I actually did not know that there was a Smart Beijing !

    It would be great if at some point it could be resurrected as well as additional sites like Smart Shenzhen, Guangzhou, etc.

    I would love to be involved in any of that, if the opportunity arises.

    Still....good luck for the future projects
