Technological advance and the citizen capacity to adapt to Information Society give us new keys to improve in e-government.
We've spoken sometimes about multiple posibilities that a mobile phone offer us. Citizen participation, politic egagement, activism, payments and a lot of more things. In order to learn about all the chances that we have, we can attend to "MobileActive: Cellphones for Civic Engagement" that it will be held in Toronto, Canada september 22-24.
Imagining that you are a political candidate in next elections, which that you are in one of the countries most developed of the world and with one of the greatest rates of penetration of Internet but which you have to make your powerless election campaign use new technologies. That is, there can not be web pages, weblogs, mailing list, etc. It would really be paradoxical, it isn't? Then it we could ask to Takafumi Horie, who according to "la flecha" himself sees obliged to doing the campaign to the traditional way since:
An electoral law of five decades of antiquity forbids the candidates the use of visual images that can arrive to an enormous and not specified number of people, which it is interpreted that that includes the campaigns in Internet. (from La Flecha "Star of Japanese Internet does traditional election campaign")
Right totally the opposite to what happens in a country quite different and moved away as it is Mexico. They are registering an excessive increase in the expenses of publicity of campaign, but on a whole remarkable increase of the presence in the net as platform of diffusion. Arturo Montiel or Roberto Madrazo pre-candidates of the PRI know about the subject! (from alt1040 "Montiel en el Universal")
