Introduction to OP3FT中国

OP3FT中国 is the local branch that the OP3FT is currently setting up in China. The OP3FT (Organization for the Promotion, Protection and Progress of Frogans technology) is a Standards Developing Organization (SDO) whose purpose is to hold, promote, protect and ensure the progress of the Frogans technology in the form of an open standard for the Internet, available to all, free of charge.

OP3FT中国 will be a WFOE (Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise) and will eventually include a Chinese team of 15 to 20 people. Its work will be defined by the OP3FT and it will have operational autonomy. In order to ensure proximity with Internet standardization and regulation bodies, and with major technological universities, OP3FT中国 will be based in Beijing.

What we want to do

The mission that the OP3FT has entrusted to OP3FT中国 is to promote and develop Frogans technology in China, in compliance with the OP3FT's Bylaws. The OP3FT中国's mission will be carried out by a local team, which will make sure that Frogans technology is well-suited to usage requirements and to regulation of the Internet in China.

OP3FT中国’s participation in the production of Frogans technology will involve, among other things:

The OP3FT continues to build a network of contacts who could provide assistance in setting up and developing OP3FT中国, managing administrative and legal matters, recruiting its employees, and with purely practical considerations.

Frogans, a new medium

Frogans is a new medium for publishing content and services on the Internet in the form of Frogans sites. From a technical standpoint, this medium is designed just like the World Wide Web: it is a generic software layer running on top of the original Internet infrastructure.

Position of Frogans as a medium

Frogans as a medium is intended to be complementary to the World Wide Web, and not to replace it, just like instant messaging was not intended to and did not replace E-mail as a medium for exchanging messages on the Internet.

Compared to the World Wide Web, the new medium is intended to suggest publishing content and services which involve visual rather than text-based communication, focused content rather than long pages, and natural interaction rather than complex user interfaces.

Frogans sites can be used to publishing any kind of content and services, from shopping for shoes to checking bank balances.

Presentations to official bodies

In 2017 and 2018, on a number of occasions, the OP3FT discussed the Frogans technology and the OP3FT中国 project with various Chinese official bodies, notably:
