Will Hutton says "China needs AlertMe"

I went to the Cambridge Network Open meeting last night, and gave a short pitch about AlertMe before the meeting started, since Cambridge has been so supportive in our Beta test phase.

The well-known journalist Will Hutton was the guest speaker and gave a fascinating talk on his topic "China and the West in the 21st century". During the panel session after his talk, when asked what he thought China might need from the UK, Will responded that Cambridge in particular had two things that China values: academic excellence and the kind of enterprise and intellectual property creation represented by AlertMe.

Thanks for the quote, Will. I'm looking forward to reading your new book on China, The Writing on the Wall.
