Chinese Blog tops Technorati 100

Technorati has been keeping track of the increasing number of blogs in languages other than English reporting at their last State of the Blogosphere that English is no longer the dominate language of blogs; the majority of blog posts are now in Japanese.

The number one blog on the Technorati 100 is now, 老徐 徐静蕾 新浪BLOG by Xu Jing Lei taking over the number one spot from BoingBoing earlier this month. Using Yahoo’s updated Babel Fish service, this title of this blog translates roughly to, "Old static flower bud." I think there’s  a cultural nuance that I’m missing here. Anyone know what this blog is about?
