Beijing Electronic Science and Technology Institute

A delegation from the Beijing Electronic Science and Technology Institute visited the OII on 14 June, 2010. It was a short but memorable visit. I spoke about our MSc and DPhil graduate programmes, and gave a presentation on the 5th Estate. I was surprised by the enthusiasm they conveyed around the idea of an Internet Institute, our focus on the societal implications of the Internet, and the concept of a 5th Estate in particular. It is clear to me that China will have major centres for research on the social aspects of the Internet in a very short time, adding to centres already developing.
