It's about 'transparency' and how people make use of telecommunication systems. (as I've been saying why not put webcams and microphone to all politicians and bureaucrats - and business leaders - :and may be to academics and all those humanitarian activists - these occupation make living out of serving public cause with public finance - ) IHT recently carried one more focused article but I cannot find it on the web, basically #Seoul Mayor Goh Kun stands at the forefront, with his innovative use of the Internet to open up everything from government bidding to housing permits, slashing corruption in a country where it has long been regarded as endemic. Akio: So you can see who's get permission of new construction and why someone's bid is rejected. Bureaucrats/officials/ elites and politicians 'need to answer' every single question posted to the web. And same system is recommended to be implemented to many states by Transparency International (One leading NGO in the field.) It works or not - I don't know but we will see - [source: http://biz.yahoo.com/bizwk/010622/fknil3_kbga1bwfyg0xnmg.html - this article's focus is much wider - focus on whole asian states. http://www.transparency.org/iacc/9th_iacc/papers/day4/plenary/d4pl_kgoh.html - From Transparency International, There should be more talks about this topic on the web but can't find them at the moment.] A.
