Databases, Electronic government information, Information policy
As demonstrated by the articles in this symposium, e-government can create significant benefits for citizens, businesses, and governments around the world. “Although still in its adolescence, the core transformative capacities of the Internet include its potential for radically shrinking communications and information costs, maximizing speed, broadening reach, and eradicating distance.”1 E-government is a key method for achieving many of these goals. The articles in this symposium issue have presented a number of diverse e-government projects that are currently demonstrating the potential benefits of e-government.
