Porsgrunn Leading The Way

Porsgrunn kommune is the best online municipality in Norway. It has received awards and honors. Other municipalities are now following in their footsteps.

Thomas Naper, Varden, 30/11-11
Porsgrunn kommune is actively pursuing continued state-of-the-art web friendliness.

One key strength of Porsgrunn kommune's web pages is their user oriented focus. Whereas the traditional paradigm has been "here's who we are and what we offer" Porsgrunn kommune has turned everything on its head, and rightly so. The question is always: "What do our web visitors want and how do they seek to find it"?

Thomas Naper is part of a great ICT team in Porsgrunn kommune with a wonderfully simplistic approach to serving citizens online. He is also a member of "The Expert Council in Telemark" facilitating "Telemark best på web". Today Thomas Naper was interviewed by Funka Nu in Sweden; a 105 second read well worth your time. (English readers are encouraged to use Google translate.)

Thomas Naper is now on Vidar Top's List of Great People.
