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.
We make available today the video keynote that Tim Berners-Lee recorded for the 4th EU Ministerial Conference that took place in Lisbon on 19-21 September 2007. The video length is 15 minutes and it’s available in small size and large size. There are also available the video transcript and a set of accompanying slides that was used as a summary of the video content by José M. Alonso to complement the keynote.
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.
