This statement by the NAO (National Audit Office, ‘Valtiontalouden tarkastusvirasto’ in Finnish) does not give high credits to the impact of public-led information technology projects. It states that
– the concrete impacts on local geographic levels have been mild, compared to
the substantial financial bets placed in these projects
– the goals set in these IT projects have not been met satisfactorily

The goals set in 2003 by the Council of state were among others:
* to increase the capability of citizens of Finland in using information technology
* to ensure that citizens would have unhindered access to fast network connections

Hi! A bit updated description. Code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog I wrote 80% of technology related articles, mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
