eGovernance Presentation

As promised, I have uploaded the presentation (PPT File, 148K) I gave earlier this week to the Madhya Pradesh government in Bhopal. The title is “Emergent Democracy: Enabling an eGovernance Ecosystem”. The inspiration came frm an article I read by Joi Ito.

The basic themes are two: (i) how to create a mass-market tech utility by setting up teleinfocentres in every village (driven not by state subsidies or funding, but by entrepreneurs and with a viable business model), and (ii) building out an intelligent, real-time egovernance infrastructure.

[Since I have mentioned costs in Indian Rupees, the conversion rate is Rs 50 = 1 USD.]

Will write a Tech Talk based on the presentation soon, to elaborate on the ideas outlined and subsequent thinking.

Thanks to all who gave ideas and suggestions in response to my earlier post.
