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.
Tomorrow afternoon, several members of the Interest Group will be at FOSE presenting Putting Government Data on the Web: It sounds like a great idea. Now, how do we do it?.
If you’re in town, by all means come by. It’s free to many, and only $60 to the rest. I hear it’s a grand event (this will be my first time going), and it’s a good chance to connect with like-minded folks.
Meetings this week:
All meeting are on the usual teleconference bridge (+1.617.761.6200) with the conference code 3468(“EGOV”). For more details see teleconferences.
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.
