I wanted to take the opportunity to alert you to the fact that the first
year issue paper is now published. The location information and the
announcement from the W3 website is below.


I can't express enough how much I have appreciated your hard work,
comments, dedication, and focus to making this document a reality.
Please take a moment to take a pat on the back and have a thought on a
job well done.


We are in a time of great change and one that is finally welcoming the
promise of electronic government, openness and transparency, open
government data, and citizen involvement along with the complementary
technologies and open web standards that can make all desired a reality.


We are playing a very important role in the present and setting the
stage for our impact in the future of electronic delivery of services,
information, and data to those that desire it while aiding in the
knowledge, understanding, and access of government by constituents
around the World.


I am looking forward to year 2 of the group and formulating the work
plan and agenda. I am equally excited and engaged by the potential for
achievement and impact of this group to aiding governments in realizing
the promises of electronic government. Onward we go!!!!







Improving Access to Government through Better Use of the Web Note

2009-05-12: The eGovernment Interest Group
<http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/IG/>  has published a Group Note of 
Improving Access to Government through Better Use of the Web
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/NOTE-egov-improving-20090512/> . This
document is an attempt to describe, but not yet solve, the variety of
issues and challenges faced by governments in their efforts to apply
21st century capabilities to eGovernment initiatives. It provides
examples of existing, applicable open Web standards. Where government
needs in the development of eGovernment services are not currently met
by existing standards, those gaps are noted. Learn more about the 
eGovernment Activity <http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/> . (Permalink
