Harbin Ethnography continued:
I'm an anthropologist whose work has focused on UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Internet, communication technologies and multimedia in the past (MacLeod 2006), but in this book, I develop these interests in new directions. “Harbin Hot Springs Actual/Virtual Ethnography: Hippies, Healing, Counterculture, and Clothing-Optional Virtual Harbin” is an actual and virtual anthropological study. By creating an actual/virtual comparison, I'm departing from many anthropological studies, to create a new approach to ethnography. Whether or not one can began to examine aspects of new forms of virtual culture which have correlates with actual life is a claim, which we can study and learn about.
