Welcome! The World Wide Web Consortium invites all who work within governments or those who work or engage with governments to participate in the many opportunities sponsored by W3C and the Web community.
W3C's eGovernment Activity currently offers speakers, discussion forums, educational information, and guidelines focused on helping governments to publish data in open, standards-based formats so that information can be more easily accessed on the Web.
The World Bank, in partnership with other organizations, organized a Global Dialogue on mGovernment, an in-person and online event that took place in late November 2007. As part of their special coverage Stephane Boyera and José M. Alonso (W3C) were interviewed and shared their thoughts on eGovernment, Mobile Web and Developing Countries. The interview is available online.
eGovernment is the use of the Web and other information technologies by governments to interact with the citizenry, between departments and divisions, and with other governments.
