Heading to Paris - Top 10 Who Are Changing the World of Internet and Politics

As some might already know, I was selected as one of 'Top 10 Who Are Changing the World of Internet and Politics', in PoliticsOnline and the World eDemocracy Forum's 11th annual awards.

Senator Kate Lundy was also selected, and you can find her press release here.

It is rare to have two Australians receive such a prestigious international award - even more so as this award is barely known in Australia, but is globally held in high regard.

I was nominated and selected on the basis of this blog, eGovAU, not my work activities, however to my knowledge this is the first time an Australian public servant has received this award - and, for that matter, the first time an elected Australian representative has received it.

As a result I've decided to take next week off and attend the World eGov Forum in Paris as a guest.

It looks to be a fantastic event.

I'll try to liveblog, or at least tweet the event and share what I learn with as broad a base of Australian public servants as possible.

I'll also try to maintain my listing of Groggate articles.

So au revoir in advance!

(and to the burglars out there, yes I have a housesitter)


  1. Congratulations, Craig. A most deserved award.
