Nothing much has changed since 1400 and whatever

I came across two great quotes from Niccolo Machiavelli today …

“Innovation makes enemies of all those who prospered under the old regime and only luke warm support is forthcoming from all those would prosper under the new”

“There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things”

These two should be the mottos of e-government pioneers.
