Embracing IT in Changing Times
China is one of the latest adopters of computers and has become a major force in the manufacture and distribution of consumer electronics around the world. It is today the largest user of the Internet and social media technologies as well. This is a detailed history of how China was introduced to computers, their diffusion since the 1950s in the country, government policies that either harmed or promoted the use of this technology, and the effects it has had on both exports and domestic use of computing. The story is taken through the first decade of the twenty-first century. It includes considerable statistical data on volumes of systems installed and used over the decades.
