Every ministry is different because we build this platform as a opt-in. So they don’t have to bring everything here. In fact to most of the things we say “no” because it is not about Internet people. So we built this very interesting multi-stakeholder dialogue platform that saves the civil servants time and face. Because the Taiwan civil servants at this time are very disadvantaged because they are not completely anonymous like in the UK. So if something goes wrong they get punished. On the other hand we are a young democracy. So whatever they get right the elected officials get all the credit. So this is a lose-lose situation. If they do something wrong they get punished, if they do something right somebody else gets the credit.
