Digital Natives: music fans and online community

The Digital Natives Reporters in the Field series continues with " a conversation with blogger Qin Zhi Lau." Here's the interview as presented on the the Digital Natives blog:

Rest your eyes — we’re going audio-only this week. Digital Natives reporter Nikki Leon chatted online with Qin Zhi Lau, a second-year Princeton student who runs the blog in his spare time. Although the blog started as a side project for QZ (as he’s sometimes called), it’s become a small-scale hub for English-speaking fans of Asian music. In this interview, QZ gives insight into what it’s like to manage an online community and how being a digital native has shaped his view of the world.
