DESIGNING FOR E-GOVERNMENT
New Labour has pinned many of its hopes on moving government services to online delivery, and the Office of the e-Envoy has recently issued guidelines on Web usability. Government, both local and national, has become a major user of design services. How is experience design adapting to this new area of work, in which people will need services in very varied contexts, where the audience is _everybody_, and levels of familiarity with user interfaces can't be assumed? How do we design for the e-government 'back office' and evangelise user experience in government? How do we create and work with government-mandated standards for user interface and usability? And where do policy agendas run up against designerly approaches to problem-solving?
