Internet Access gets invited at the village festival

Internet CommonsLet us imagine one fine day of the beginning of the summer, a symbolic instant when the population would be invited to participate in an event of a particular character. This event would be pretext in a collective action.

Indeed, each one would be invited there to link up his house with his neighbour's by a small plastic tube, constituting suchlike in some hours a large capillary network on the whole territory. They would not pour the wine there but instead let slide there, in the following days, a fine cable with fibre optics, according to a plan defined beforehand. The engineers would be delighted to have FTTH so fast and so lightly.

Some days still pass, specialists bustle about in various points of the locality to the technical equipment, to connect the plugs put in slots, and here it is!

The village is ready from now on to link up in Internet, drawing from among the thousands of services available those who are the best suitable for each one. And again there you have it! All this is a bit simple of course, but indeed not foolish …

The era of Internet Commons is there, within the reach of a click, just grab it. It is here to know about a bit more.

From eGovernment to eGovernance

The electronic governance (EGovernance) aims at improving the quality and effectiveness of relations between the State and the constituents. It makes thoughtful usage of electronic means of computer science and communication and of the huge pool of opportunities that the application of these ICTs provides. There is life indeed beyond Triple-Play!

Several fundamental conditions must be gathered to allow the clever deployment of eGovernance. It is necessary for example that the population's majority is comfortable using the Internet access tools. It is as needed, and we shall itemise it later, as every citizen, every firm, every inhabitant has access to the services of the State or its agencies but also as the State or its representatives has access to every citizen, to every firm and to every inhabitant. The State has never proved to be particularly efficient in this domain, the influence of which on the life of each is crushing and goes growing. The private sector finds in the "electronic Government", the eGovernment, a new and powerful occasion to do business by promoting the use of ICT in the public administration to improve its internal effectiveness.

It is besides in the internal that the term Cyberadministration was born. This development drives in reality to the super-administration, more efficient inside, and heavier still for the constituent. Only the Civil Society - also subject to be interested in eGovernance - can give a credible alternative in a sound development of eGovernance. Follow me to know more about it. Thanks for your interest.

Internet champion of horizontality

Internet Commons allow a complete change paradigm. Indeed, this Internet access based on fibre optics (FTTH) and a topology where every point of the network forms its centre does know no owner. It is not to sell, on the contrary it allows each of the value added service providers- building, service, maintenance of the physical network, acquisition, distribution and management of applications, customers management, etc - to stand out against in an open market not dominated by giants in their essentially vertical structures. Three cheers for freedom of enterprise and here it is here …follow me.
