Trust Online for Information Sharing

Cat Kutay


The use of the Internet for information sharing between government departments and between government and community organisations is growing. However the issue of trust needs further study as this communication could benefit from Web 2.0 technologies. This project was initiated by a network of Indigenous people in government and community who wished to make more efficient use of information sharing online, without people external to the culture and aspirations being able to influence the content, or comment on the work being shared. The culture has a strong protocol for sharing information or knowledge, and this is rarely valued outside this community. Furthermore, the experience as a minority culture within a colonised society has increased the caution in public display of people’s interests or concerns.
