Seminar on Chinese Grassroots Media: In Search of Free Thinking

Date:    April 3, 2007
Time:    1:00p.m. to 3:00p.m.
Venue:     Foundation Chamber, G/F, Eliot Hall, The University of Hong Kong

Isaac Mao, Shanghai-based blogger, software architect, entrepreneur and investor, will speak of the emergence of China's new media and the barriers to free speech and free thinking on the mainland.

Rapidly-emerging grassroots media (including blogs, wikis, and other forms of social software) have changed China's media landscape dramatically in just 4 years.  They have triggered business, social and political changes. But Mao believes that barriers to free thinking within the Chinese mind - such as self-censorship - remain the biggest barrier to revolutionary social change.

Mao recently made waves in the technology world with his open letter to Google, challenging the search engine giant to support anti-censorship efforts and change its strategy in China.

Isaac Mao divides his time between research, social works, business and technology. He runs or advises several non-profit programs and for-profit businesses in China.

As one of China's earliest bloggers, Isaac is co-founder of CNBlog.org, the earliest evangelizing site in China on grassroots publishing. He is also co-organizer of Chinese Blogger Conference (2005 in Shanghai, 2006 in Hangzhou).
