Someone said that e-gov is implementing an efficient collection of taxes and e-democracy is efficiently effecting the way taxes are spent. Government employees are usually interested in e-gov and least interested in e-democracy… little like a school teacher that thinks the job is great if it weren’t for the students.
How is it out there with e-democracy interest among government employees? We in Sweden around the turn of the century saw a lot of e-democracy experiments going on, researchers finding all sorts of positive effects and then all died down and the thrust (in the form of public funding) went over to e-government. Are the concepts competeing for funding in the USA? Were is the emphasis?
