For site visitors from Japan or at least reading Japanese, here is a series of articles inspired by the International Symposium on Local E-Democracy that I organized in July with the UK Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.
You can get the gist in with the Google translation into English.
Here are links to the other articles in what turned into a four part series by reporter Yuki Ishikawa:
E-Government and Democracy
Blogging and Participation
For those looking for more media coverage on the conference, an article in the U.S.-base Federal Computer Week, summed it up for you English readers: Britain outpaces the United States in e-democracy
And by the way, all the conference slides are available here.
