  "In addition, W3C renewed today the eGovernment Interest Group,
    a forum for building and strengthening the community of people who
    use or promote the use of W3C technologies to improve Government.
    That group identifies and discusses essential areas of technology
    and related policy issues; see the full eGov Interest
      Group charter and learn more about eGovernment at W3C."

    Hi all


    A little over a month ago I posted the following:

    On behalf of the Invited Expert (Public Members) participants to the W3C e-Government Interest Group I would like to strongly urge member organizations to support the continuing work of the W3C in this space.

Many of us come from within Government and Academia, often where our respective employers cannot or will not become member organizations. None the less, the work of the IG has been instrumental in not only facilitating the free exchange of ideas and promotion of W3C standards between countries and agencies, but has been somewhat instrumental in the move towards Linked Open Data and the data.gov.* efforts by Governments worldwide.

Please support our continued work in these very exciting times for Government in an online world.
