2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
We found many fans on Fong’s official website, and we contacted them to arrange interviews. We went from the north to the south, and encountered Fong’s brother, the lecture by Farglory Group, Mr. Xue (the Fong Pavilion) and some fans from Yunlin. We got so many precious documents, audio and videos. We could see the true friendship between Fong and her fans. Moreover, in order to play ambassadors well, we arranged tour guides in English at the exhibition on campus for foreign teachers. Our exhibition was the first Fong memorial exhibition in south central Taiwan. The whole school received visitors from all over Taiwan. We were trying to make this legendary diva more local and national, so she could still shine in every corner of the world.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
Almost all the activities to remember Fong were held in northern and southern Taiwan. Because of CyberFair, we had the chance to hold the very first Fong memorial exhibition in south central Taiwan, especially for fans nearby. Therefore, we got a lot of support and compliments. They expected our exhibition to be able to express Fong’s spirit. Local spirit and culture are not that easy to pass down. Through collecting Fong’s information, we also learned about the farming society and what laborers think.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
During the process of doing the project research, we received both spiritual encouragement and sponsorship of different materials. Because of everyone’s support, the process was smooth and successful. Some friends and helpers have been listed to thank you for their all support.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Due to generation gap, Fong was not an idol we were familiar with, but through instructors' help and Fong's fans' contribution on Facebook, we've learned about this treasure of Taiwan. In fact, Taiwanese talk show was originated from Fong's hosting, and skits we can often see on TV started from Fong's shows as well. Besides, we found her collections of many unreleased Taiwanese folk songs from her albums. the beautiful local music amazed us. It is said that fruits are sweetest when they are ripped. Nevertheless, the process taught us a great lesson, such as discussions, contact by phone, making questionnaires, interviews, solving problems and organizing exhibitions. In truth, being a little journalist is not easy, but the hardship is like nutrition that helps us grow.
