e-government blog launched

The Northern Ireland e-Government Unit team have just launched EGOVNI.COM: a blog designed to be a general eGovernment news resource and source of information on current developments in technology.

So far public sector blogging has been mostly the sharing of the private views of individuals who work in government departments or the public or pundits commenting on public sector matters. EGOVNI.COM breaks new ground with a public sector department using the 'blog medium' as an 'official communication channel'. This is the first such blog of its kind which I have seen and would expect this to become a popular approach with government departments.

Bill McCluggage, Director of the Northern Ireland e-government Unit, believes that "Blogging is potentially going to replace conventional web sites as the preferred mechanism for communicating important information and the free interchange of ideas".

Bill goes on to say that "A key element of our role within the Northern Ireland eGovernment Unit is to prepare public sector organisations to adopt the latest online business tools. Our work also includes developing innovative policies that will enable workers within the public sector to exploit these new and innovative types of communication with the public at large. Hence, our weblog is a vehicle through which we are developing a set of enabling policies and, at the same time, learning new communication skills".

The blog is underpinned by an evolving Blog Policy which aims to maintain the freshness and informality of blogging without compromising the care that needs to be taken on the accuracy and objectivity of information which goes with such a role.

EGOVNI.COM: provides an independent perspective on a number of important e-government and e-society topics including:

  • Central Departments
  • Contact Centres
  • Digital Inclusion
  • Education
  • eGovernment channels
  • Events and Campaigns

  • News & Media Topics

  • Non-Departmental Public Bodies

Animal Instincts in the office

Just because we might have selfish genes it does not mean we have to behave selfishly; nature knows when to be nice as well as nasty and nepotism occurs in the biological world too with equal destructiveness as our world. This is according to Richard Conniff author of The Ape in the Corner Office and reviewed in the UK Guardian Newspaper (27 May).
