I had been wondering how the government of Brazil worked so I googled some information. What do others think of this presentation?

Great summary of a very limited action. The author’s vision is very narrow and lacks a more holistic approach of the real problems we are facing. The model presented is very “centralized” and does not include the content generated by users, that is our biggest problem. How to deal with the user-generated content?
So far in Brazil, the E-government is an attempt to bring a outdated e-business model into the public sector. A component-by-component examination of the outdated e-business model shows that it is fraught with problems, challenges, and limitations, as well as opportunities, for those who would attempt to implement it in government. Of course, there is a great deal to research and discuss! E-government is not “apple pie” or “motherhood,” immune from criticism and controversy. Indeed, it is not “a” thing at all but rather a large set of options that can go in many directions, not all of them productive or even desirable.

I coulnd´t agree more with Hélio, but as a service provider for São Paulo and Minas Gerais State I woul like to share our experiences on the field.
We faced a strong resistence when implementing Project TEIAMG, an iniciative for the secretary of state for Science and technology that intends to spread the use of WEB2.0 tools and environments throught the state. After an year with strong results thera are already a new culture in Minas Gerais that goes towards a more open view and integration of government data bases and KM iniciatives.
Since september São Paulo State is adopting WEB 2.0 and some secretaries are developing their own programs that in a near future will expontaneusly merge or develop contact points.
The biggest problem is proving to government enough evidences that a descentralized content generation is not a threat or could compromise government programs. There are some huge advances but it is far from solved.
