Danwei World Tour Stop 1

Your correspondent is on the move, attending some China related events. This is the first one:

The Hyperlinked Society Conference
It's at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. The conference seeks to answer these questions:

Do links encourage people to see beyond their personal situations and know the broad world in diverse ways? Or, instead, do links encourage people to drill into their own territories and not learn about social concerns that seem irrelevant to their personal interests? What roles do economic and political considerations play in creating links that nudge people in one or the other direction?

If you have any thoughts on the subject that you think should be raised at this conference, leave them in the comments or send to jeremy -at- danwei dot org.

Related: a conference in London called Modernisation, Modernity and the Media in China, also involving the Annenberg School for Communication.
