Jaarboek ICT 2012

Responses by the press to a chapter written with Bert Enserink for De transformerende kracht van ICT edited by Corien Prins, Anton Vedder and Frans van der Zee (published by Media Update December 2012, Dutch) in which we criticize the Dutch Court of Audit’s response to the Parliament’s question on the benefits of open standards for e-government, and propose a framework for systematically measuring these benefits: e.g. from Gijs Hillenius in Joinup (English);  from Richard Keijzer in AutomatiseringGids (Dutch) and from Johannes van Bentum in Computable  (Dutch). It was discussed by members of the Dutch parliament at an Open iOverheid conference session (January 2013, Groningen; organizer Mathieu Paapst). For the English version see ‘Measuring the Benefits of Open Standards: A Contribution to Dutch Politics’ in: The Value of Open Standards, Standards Today – A Journal of News, Ideas and Analysis, July 2013, Vol XII No 1.
