First paragraph: Welcome to the latest issue of Information Polity! We are writing this Editorial as we reach the point at which the COVID-19 pandemic has been with us for over 18 months. In this period, we have grown accustomed to online meetings in the workplace and find that large parts of our daily lives are conducted and configured digitally. For those of us who are academics, this has involved extensive online teaching and participation in online workshops and conferences. As eGovernment scholars, we are well versed in the challenges of delivering online services and the many pitfalls posed by issues like: privacy, digital inclusion, digital and data literacy, not to mention issues associated with algorithmic accountability, the commercialisation of public data and the transformation of state apparatus.
