East Meets West: Developing the Internet in China

East Meets West: Developing the Internet in China was created by Robert Lundahl & Associates, LLC for Sun Microsystems. It represents a view into the culture and technologies present in China at a point of transition in history.

This transition included the handover of Hong Kong to the PRC, the development of internet connectivity in the PRC in conjunction with U.S. universities, including Stanford, and the evolution of technologies that saw China develop its own internet backbone.


Producer/Director Robert Lundahl travelled to mainland China, visiting China On Line, Hong Kong Telecom, The Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing, and many other government facilities and internet start ups in the Middle Kingdom, to produce this amazing report which stands now as witness to one era yielding to the next.
