About French Internet
Just to share here a presentation about French Internet context and situation. I made this document for a lecture on this topic at Wuhan University in April 2010.
Xiao Jun, an associate professor from Communication & Journalism School of Wuhan University invites me during her lessons to give a 3 hours lecture on French Internet (thanks to her). It was a really good opportunity to discuss with Chinese students about some Internet hot topic. The debate on privacy gives birth to a lot of questioning about the purposes of Internet and its possible evolution. Students and teachers were pleased with the lecture, as they don't have a lot of opportunities to see what is happening in France on Internet.
