The Dutch ICT newswebsite WebWereld talks about the way chatrooms will be made safer for children. In the future chatrooms can only be accessed when you have a smartcard that allows checks like calculating the age of identities. These smartcards will handed out to all people older then 12 in Belgium before 2009. They also allow stuff like e-mail signing and other PKI like activitities. I’ve heard that it is also possible to use the smartcard for tax related things and that these most e-government applications are webbased to allow easy access for Belgium citizens.

In Holland alot of jokes are made about our southern friends but these thing are good initiatives! I hope this is a inspiration for a lot of other countries. Not only to make the internet safer but also to make e-government really work!

So if you can read Dutch then follow the like specified at the source.
