When I checked, it was for my work on this blog, which is now eight years old.
That's decent for a blog lifespan, where the majority are abandoned within the first year.
Thank you to everyone who has read, contributed to, commented on, republished or shared my posts - while most of the words in my blog are mine, its success is due to the thousands of people who have encouraged, critiqued and prompted me to keep writing on topics that, at times, are difficult to raise in other places and in other ways.
eGovernment and Government 2.0 are a journey, not a destination - as buzzwords including Digital Transformation, Social Government, Innovation demonstrate (a good caution on the use of buzzwords is here).
The end goal, always, is to serve citizens in the most effective ways, using the least quantity of resources possible (not simply money) in the process.
The Government 2.0 journey (whatever buzzword you prefer) is far from over.
Reflecting on technology from a human lifespan perspective, we're barely into the early adulthood of the public internet, barely into teens for social media, just started school for open data and just out of diapers for the cloud.
And those are just a few of the technology-driven innovations that are changing and evolving our societies, environments, governments and world.
We're yet to see the large-scale impact of technologies including 3D printing, autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and many others that have already been developed, let alone all the tech still behind closed doors or on the drawing board.
In the immortal words of Randy Bachman, "You ain't seen nothing yet"!
Here's a few statistics from the eGovAU blog to celebrate its anniversary...
Published posts: 1,581 (including this one!)
Draft posts: 60 (I like to keep a backlog, but some are half-finished and may never be published)
Pageviews all time: 1,693,550
This excludes syndication (automated republishing of my blog in other sites) and selective republishing in commercial and non-commercial publications. I estimate total pageviews is likely to be about 4x this figure from the other data I have (so around 7m views).
