I gave my inaugural lecture, entitled ‘Through the Network (of Networks) — the Fifth Estate’, at the Examination Schools on 15 October 2007. Oxford posted an overview of this lecture at: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/po/news/2007-08/oct/16.shtml

As is the tradition, I did not field questions. Therefore, I would be delighted to field your questions or you may post your comments on this blog.
More recently, I have posted the lecture as a working paper on SSRN. See:
Dutton, William H., “Through the Network of Networks – The Fifth Estate” (October 15, 2007). Available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1134502
William H. Dutton (B.A. University of Missouri; M.A., PhD. SUNYBuffalo, 1974) is Professor of Internet Studies, Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, and Fellow of Balliol College.
