eGovernment in 2002
I didn't get a chance to mention Dr. John Gotze's review of 2002 in eGovernment.  eGovernment professionals should take note of what Denmark is doing.  I am looking forward to reading his egovernment strategy white paper.

National Middleware Initiative

The National Science Foundation Middleware Initiative (NMI) proposes to design, develop, deploy and support a set of reusable, expandable middleware functions and services that benefit many applications in a networked environment, and which will, a) facilitate scientific productivity, b) increase research collaboration through shared data, digital libraries, computing, code, facilities and applications, c) support the education enterprise, d) encourage the participation of industry partners, government labs and agencies for more extensive development and wider adoption and deployment, e) establish a level of persistence and availability so that researchers and other applications developers and disciplines can take advantage of the middleware, f) encourage and support the development of standards and open source approaches, g) enable scaling and sustainability to support the larger research and education communities, and h) encourage international coordination for interoperability.

Release 2 of the NMI software was made available on October 25th.  It includes eleven distinct software packages supporting many different operating environments, online services, directory schema, conventions and best practices, architecture documents, and policies.

The Dean of Governors

Governor Mike Leavitt became the country's senior governor this week.  An article in today's Salt Lake Tribune quotes Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee:

"Gov. Leavitt doesn't seek out attention, but others seek him out for his wisdom and insight. When he speaks, everyone listens carefully."

Having a governor that appreciates and promotes technology is a wonderful opportunity for those who advocate egovernment.  An article in the January issue of Governing magazine discusses the relatively new enterprise IT management process that Governor Leavitt initiated in August.
