      • Conclusion
    • I. Visions, Futures, and Select Aspects of E-State
      • 1. Bush’s Memex (1945)
      • 2. McLuhan’s Global Village (1959) and Gutenberg Galaxy (1962)
      • 3.Toffler’s Third Wave (1980), Infosphere (1980) and Electronic Cottage (1980)

    • II. Evolution of E-state
      • ► Fountains’ Virtual State (2001)
      • ► Fountain defines Virtual State as
      • “ a government that is organized increasingly in terms of virtual agencies, cross-agency and public-private networks whose structure and capacity depend upon the Internet and web” (Fountain 2001:4).
    • III. Characteristic Features of E-state
      • 1. E-state functions through
      • e-government
      • 2. E-state is more powerful than state
      • 3. E-state is an extension of state
      • 4. E-state has spawned a number of phenomena
      • 5. E-state requires substantial investment
    • Characteristic Features of E-state
      • 6. E-state serves its citizens more economically and efficiently
      • 7. E-state has created demand for new services
      • 8. E-state has created demand for better performance
      • 9. E-state has improved accountability and transparency
      • 10.E-state is dynamic and still evolving
    • IV. Implications of Rise of E-state
      • 1.The rise of e-state will strengthen the state through e-government.
      • 2.There will be greater citizen participation in the affairs of the state, again through e-government.
      • 3.The state is going to be more expensive for the citizens as citizens will be required to support both the e-state and state, and the state will be required to meet higher expectations of citizens from e-government.
    • Findings of Panagopulous (2004)
      • “ The evidence indicates that improvements in the level of digital government in a country will positively affect the level of public confidence in government.”
      • “ In fact, for every full unit (1.0) of increase in the e-Government Index, confidence in government is predicted to increase to an astounding 16 percentage points.”
      • Similarly, as regards participation (indicated by voting in election), Panagopulous found: “As a nations’ e-Government level (e-Gov Index) rises by a full unit, the turnout in that country is expected to rise by nearly eight percentage points.”
      • “ In fact, a full-unit increase in the E-Gov Index would yield a substantial increase of 15 points in the mean rate of turnout” in case of states categorized as “Free” by Freedom House.
      • “ Specifically, higher levels of digital government are expected to produce greater confidence in government as well as higher turnout in election.”
    • V. Conclusion
      • Emergence of E-state is reality.
      • E-state is add-on to existing state.
      • E-state increases the confidence of citizens in government.
      • E-state increases citizen participation in government.
      • E-state strengthens democracy where in existence.
