Can Internet-based technologies deliver on the promise of making government more accessible? What tangible benefits can these technologies bring to the public manager? Computers are becoming smaller, yet more powerful and considerably less expensive. The power of the computer—a faster processor, more memory, and more storage capacity—is not as important as its network capability. How well does the computer connect to the Internet to send and retrieve needed information? Warren and Weschler examine how Internet-based technologies facilitate the two-way linkage of citizens, groups and government agencies. The authors address citizen access issues and the implications of Internet technologies for electronic governance. <BR>
