Over the past decade, the internet has solidified its status and significance in society, as a vehicle for work tasks, everyday communication, politics, cultural production and consumption, and so forth. However, the internet is still intangible, emergent, and ever-changing.
The internet is becoming increasingly mobile and location-based. Personalization of services and content blend into the public or semi-public forums of the internet, and tie in with the often subtle filtering mechanisms by which content is presented to us. Services and genres are becoming seamlessly integrated through automation, share functions, and so on.
These tendencies continue to push issues of institutional, judicial, and political regulation of the internet to the public agenda.

The Centre for Internet Studies (CFI) was established on September 18th 2000 and is one of the oldest and most recognized of its kind. The aim is to facilitate and  disseminate research on the social and cultural implications of the Internet.
