The US, China and other countries have been building up capacity over the past decade to fight a full-blown cyber war. The recent disclosures of US whistle-blower Edward Snowden has been a major development in that playing field of cyber relations between the American and Chinese state and private companies. Apart from the Stuxnet attacks on Iran, exchanging cyber fire has been pretty limited up to now, as far as we know. Are those days over?
The China Weekly Hangout will try to scratch on Thursday 27 June a bit under the surface of this cyber war.
The event takes place on 10pm Beijing Times, 4pm CEST (Europe) and 10am EST (US/Canada).

Former security consultant +Mathew Hoover from Hong Kong has already agreed to join, and we are waiting for confirmation from a few other possible participants. Do you want to join, drop us an email or register right away at our event page.
You can watch the event here or at our event page. During the event you can send questions and remarks via Twitter, Google+ and our YouTube channel. (add hashtag +CWHCWH)

Update: +Paul Fox. media and communication lecturer at the HKU has also confirmed his attendance. Paul is a US citizen living in Hong Kong.

Who is hacking who, the China Weekly Hangout asked itself on February 28, with former security consultant +Mathew Hoover  and reporter +Charlie Custer of +TechinAsia, discussing the hacking issues, the Sino-US relations, including some useful information on what to worry about and what not. Moderation: +Fons Tuinstra of the China Speakers Bureau.

+Roy Graff will join us on Thursday 20 June at the China Weekly Hangout to discuss what Chinese tourists want (apart from quick visa and Chinese brochures). Getting Chinese tourists to your country, and letting them spend is an art in itself. Here is our announcement, or you can register directly at our event page.
