The state should control the use of technology, including the Internet
The state should control the use of technology, including the Internet, Russian Education and Science Minister Andrei Fursenko said at the first World Science Forum in Japan. "Free implementation of the cutting edge technology in day-to-day life might have negative aspects as well as undoubted advantages," the minister said. According to him, easy access to information via the worldwide web "brings about a tempting virtual world to bury oneself in. The result is a difficult problem about the relationship between the man and society." "The state is accountable for the control over the use of technology, including the Internet," the minister argued. The first World Science Forum that opened in Kyoto has gathered 500 experts from 40 states. Together with Fursenko, Russia has delegated Vice President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolai Platte and director of the Kurchatov Atomic Energy Institute YevgenyVelikhov, academician and a member of the Presidential Council for Research, Technology, and Education. Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi opened the three-day forum with his address to the participants. The official press release of the forum reads that the World Science Forum was gathered as a place for free discussion of world science problems. Next year, Kyoto will probably host a similar meeting
