In the Information Age, technology helps erase traditional boundaries by bringing people together in ways never before possible. Now you can instant message a friend in China whenever you want. The Information Age gives rise to a global community in which we can discover and share new ideas that can be exchanged and augmented at a moment's notice.

Government Technology brings you the latest on technology and its impact across the public sector. Our content can be transmitted around the world. Conversely we too can examine IT from a perspective that reaches outside the United States. The issues you care about also resonate with your international counterparts. And so, from time to time, it's good to take a look at what's going on at all longitudes of the globe.

With that in mind, we present our look at three key public-sector technology issues from Australia, South Korea and Canada. It's an international story that's certainly relevant here at home.
