full paper Abstract: E-government should not be considered as a single service, or even a small range of services; instead it can comprise an almost limitless range of activities. We believe that it is necessary to impose order on these diverse services before the full potential of e-government can be realized. We propose a simple classification of potential e-government services based on the privacy requirements of the service. We also believe that many e-government services have direct parallels with commercial services and that these private services should form both the inspiration and realization of e-government.
