It is a pleasure to inform you that the second issue of She Ji is now online at:
In this issue, we launch three new features. The first is “Commentary,” to encourage reflection and debate on selected articles. The second is “In Conversation,” an opportunity to meet and speak with thought leaders in design, economics, and innovation. The third is “Viewpoint,” an opportunity for leaders in industry, business, and government to discuss key issues affecting the world today.
