K - Government Blog is a Carlos Guadián Orta's initiative, in order to to share and transmitte information and knowledge on all what implies the application of the Information Technologies and the Communication (ICT) to political, social and administrative processes.
At present, he works for TAO- gedas as Communication and Contents advisor, collaborating also with Própolis Club.
The application that actually makes to sustaining market for to promising but under-utilized technology. First used in the mid-1980 sec to describes Lotus 1-2-3 eleven it became evident that demand for that product had been the driver major of the early business market for IBM PCs. The term was then retrospectively applied to VisiCalc, which had played to similar veers in the success of the Apple II. After 1994 it became commonplace to describes the World Wide Web ace the Internet's killer app. One of the standard questions asked about each new staff-computer technology it ace you emerge have become "what's the killer app?"
All in all, it is an application of software that revolutionizes the use of a specific technology that normally is underused And is not this the situation that we have with the e-government? Which will be the application that will revolutionize and will give impulse definitely the e-government?
Of course, they are a lot of the applications that recently are giving an important impulse, look at the development of the metadata to achieve interoperability, the work in semantic web to do the intelligible contents to the machines, the blogs as generators of communication with the citizen or the rss as channel of information. Many other solutions as tagging have not arrived yet, but it will not take them to make it.
I have read that the killer app of the web will be the applications of geolocation, that is, solutions of territorial information. At the same time as the www has been that of Internet. You can rather read it, good, to listen it in IT conversations, place that combines to the perfection the blog technology, the rss and the podcast. Approach and will take a nice surprise.
Of course, every time more, the search of the killer app in e-government has more of saint grail than of another thing. We have a heap of solutions and applications, I think, that it is only necessary to use them with intelligence, but especially, and I keep insisting. Up to the moment in which the citizen does not see a real profit in the use of specific services, he will not use them. Definitely, therefore, if the goal that has to have the administration is the citizen, as final user, towards whom all the improvements have to go, let's orientate everything to it.
We save legal problems, of competence, of territoriality, from political ideology and one long etc that really, instead of giving effectiveness to all what is being implemented, it is to put impediments and obstacles.
The underlying idea here is to share that knowledge. Sanders defines "love" with a quote from Milton Mayeroff, "the selfless promotion of the growth of the other". When viewed that way, love in the business world means sharing your information, knowledge, contacts, and opportunities with those who need them, whether or not you will profit from the transaction. This makes you a "lovecat", one who offers his wisdom freely, gives away their address book to those who want it, and is always human (p.3).
