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


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
