Later this month, I'll be speaking at an e-government conference in the USA, hosted by Sapient. The title is something about taking the lessons learned in the commercial world and applying them to e-government. I'm putting the slides together now. One of the main slides says "what have we learned so far? In truth ... not much". I'll have to come up with a bit more than that, but it still depresses me that we are not yet taking advantage of all of the good work done elsewhere. The screws will be on the budgets soon ... maybe that's the lever.
