Subject: OII News [2007.10.12]: Events for October and November

Dear friends and colleagues,   
   
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the Inaugural
Lecture I will be giving at the University Examination Schools this
coming Monday 15 October (17:00 - 18:00). Further details can be found
below in the Events Diary.   
   
'Through the Network (of Networks) - the Fifth Estate'   
   
The media are often seen as central to democratic processes: a 'fourth
estate' independent of government and other powerful institutions. Now,
the Internet and Web are creating a new space for networking
institutions, people, information and other resources. Through this
network of networks, individuals can be linked in ways that support
greater accountability in politics and the media. It could also have a
much wider role in opening up to greater social accountability other
institutional arenas, from everyday life to specialist fields like
healthcare and science.   
   
I will be examining the emergence of such a fifth estate and its social,
political and other implications, including its impact on the quality
and integrative capability of our information environment.    
   
Whether or not you find this thesis compatible with your own
observations, I hope you can join me on Monday to start the debate.    
   
Bill Dutton,   
Director
