Thanks for your contributions!

We did have a series of calls and IRC chats late last year and a face to face meeting at the W3C TPAC.  Virtual attendance was also provided at that meeting.  It was there that we, as a group, came up with the ideas around the outline you saw at the beginning of the year.  The group came up with topics that they wanted to discuss in more detail, and from which we might develop some tasks and activities.

Content contributions can be brought in many ways: attending the meetings (virtual or face to face), responding during the IRC, sending messages to the list serve, contributing to the wiki at http://www.w3.org/egov/wiki/Main_Page  We also have a LinkedIn group for convenience, where people can also post ideas (W3C eGovernment Interest Group at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=1800648&trk=anet_ug_hm )

With Tomasz just being announced as co-chair, it's probably a great time to be sure we are still in synch with the group.  Welcome to hearing your ideas!

thanks for reply

I may not have welcomed/ congratulateD Tomasz on joining the team, let me take the opportunity. (welcome Tomasz)

However I 'd to understand (urgently) , if this workgroup adopts a participatory practice, or not

if it does, it is not up to you nor to Tomasz to
make the roadmap, but up to each list member
If a list member does not contribute their ideas /opinions, or have really nothing to say ever, I wonder why they have joined.

If the governance of this workgroup is by selected committee (another elite?), then maybe this - at this stage -  is not  yet a community of  self directed leaders I am hoping for :-)

I would like each member to contribute to the roadmap, and to hear everybody's voice and opinion on every single issue, because now we have the technology to do so.  Members who do not have anything to say ever on anything are lurkers, not members,(imho)

 That's the e-governance I have in mind and I am interested in helping co-create......

Let me know if I should put my energies elsewhere :-)

Thanks for this timely message. As I hope you will have seen, the group has a new co-chair, Tomasz Janowski, who will be working with Jeanne, Sandro and I on this group. We are all aware of the need to set out a rejuvenated roadmap - it's coming, and soon.

Greetings, E-Gov SIG

I am reviewing my ability to make useful contributions to various
for the next semester, as I am travelling a lot, I find it difficult
to attend conference calls . Apologies for not being more active.
 (pulling own ears)

I remain however interested in the topic, and realise I am not
sure who is on this group, and what are the goals of the memebers,
involvement with e-gov
and what can we learn from each other

Apologies if I have missed out on something

Can someone remind  please

where is the wiki where people can enter their contributions/suggestions
for talks/projects, our shared -participative agenda so to speak?

would it be a good idea if each group member (willing to do so) to
give a short talk  in forthcoming months (also just a few asynchronous
slides) to introduce themselves
what do they do and what do they would like to achieve with the
in this community, so that we share some knowledge and learn from each

I am working on distributed decision making processes for governance and
and would be glad to know if there is anyone around with similar interests,
for example
