Abstract

The evolution of humanity is not synchronized with the one on technology. A similar technological process like the one we have already been through during the whole last century, happen between 2001 and 2015. If we are to look further, same process will happen starting from now till 2021, from 2021 to 2025… We will face, around the year 2025 such a great technological advance, that in just one single year it will equalize the whole technological advance of the 20th century. The technology advances exponentially. In the near future we will speak about: virtual monetary systems, editing the human genome, network neutrality, drones, artificial intelligence, robotics, biotechnology, neuronal implants, virtual reality and things that are not yet invented. As Ray Kurzweil (an American author, computer scientist, inventor and futurist) said in the 21 century we won’t experience just 100 years of progress but, 20.000 years if we are to take into consideration the today’s speed of the technological advance. So we have to adapt to this new era, to change the regulatory system, and to do it fast. In this article we will present shortly the evolution of Romanian e-government legal framework over time, showing how slow the whole process is and offering some examples of laws that are completely improper for what is going to happen in the future.
