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.
In order to fulfill the mission of the group “to build and strengthen the community of people who use or promote the use of W3C technologies to improve Government” and to facilitate its efforts to “identify and discuss essential areas of technology and related policy issues”, we put forward a draft roadmap to organize and guide our discussions. We welcome feedback and comments from all members on this draft. Please feel free to edit the wiki directly or send comments to the list, or to the chairs, Tomasz or Jeanne.
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.
