ROME - the Council of Ministers has given the ok definitive to the certifyd e-mail. The provision door hour Italy between the first countries to the world to giving complete validita' legal to documents transmitted via email that they thus become like one registered letter.

It asserts the minister for the Innovation and the technologies, Tired Lucio, announcing the definitive approval from part of the government of the provision that ' ' disciplines I not only use it of the certifyd e-mail in the relationships that city and enterprises entertains with Public Administration, but also in the relations between offices publics, like also between privati' '.

The decree, remembers the Ministry in a famous one, had been fired from the 25 Council of Ministers past March and, after to be passed to I winnow of the Unified Conference, Council of State, Parliament, Ministries and Commission ue, it has completed the iter legislative and with the next publication in Official Gazette it becomes operating to all the effects.

' ' the provision e' an action of modernita' and we are between the first Countries to the world to have launched a similar disposition, to demonstration of the engagement of this Government in carrying ahead the process of modernization of the Paese' ', has said Tired. ' ' the e-mail certifyd e' one large innovation perche' piu' the always diffused email e': in every Italy day they come at least sent 400 million electronic messages (that is 146 billions the year), with the projection of beyond 500 million to the day in the 2005' ', has added to the minister specifying that ' ' the buyable on market and supplied service sara' from operating characterized and certificati' '.

The decree - the Ministry still finds - certifys the shipment and the reception: cio' it means, for the shipment, than the sender it receives from just the manager of mail one received that it constitutes legal test of the happened shipment of the message and eventual the attached documentation. In the same way, when the message reaches the adressee, its manager of mail sendes to the sender the receipt of happened (or lacked) delivery, with the indication of date and timetable, to prescind from the opening of the message.

With to the delivery receipt, moreover, the manager of the adressee puo' also to send to the sender the complete copy of the text of the message. Instituted E' - the official notice remembers finally - an official directory of the managers of certifyd e-mail near the National Center for Computer science in Public Administration, to which they are assigns to you to tasks of vigilance and control on the attivita' of the enrolled one.

Near every manager of e-mail it comes instituted a Log of the messages, the computer science registry of the relative operations to the transmissions carried out with certifyd e-mail. In such a way, in the case in which the sender smarrisca receipts, the computer science trace of the carried out operations, with the same legal value of receipts, sara' conserved for 30 months.

Finally the Tired minister has rendered famous one important novita' for the eventual presence of virus in the e-mail: he comes created a double filter from part of the managers (of the sender and the adressee) which are held to block to the shipment and the reception in case of presence of virus and signaling it to the sender.

How much the Center counts?

It's some time that I don't speak about politics..

Maurizio on the today's post resumes a political topic that could be defined as the "abandonment of the extreme electorate" when elections come closer. In the post, .mau. gives a mathematical interpretation to the phenomenon, showing that the politicians don't do good accounts. Read it, because it is interesting. A synthesis cannot be made, if not that the conclusion of the mumbling is that the politicians prefer to move to "center" - watching to uncertain ballots of the moderate flanges - than losing (with smaller uncertainty) the ballots of the more extremist zones.

The temptation has come me to make a reflection, that I forward also to my few readers.

I guess that if politicians (those that make true politics) make this move, as they think that is worth moving to the center in order to take more ballots than to lose some leaving at the extreme sides, there must be one (or more) reason. The problem of the thought, (always considering that it is a metaphor on politics) is that if some percentages of voters don't go to vote anymore, perhaps it's not a problem: since numerically it counts who takes more ballots, it counts therefore who succeeds to "bring" the votes of the center electorate. Mathematically speeching: if a political formation loses 100 ballots on the left and 100 ballots to the right, but then it earns 10 ballots to the center that concur of having the game, so it has won. In a perfect bipolar system, it would win therefore who had sold 50% of voters plus one, and not how many votes has placed. A true objection to my reflection could be that since the system is symmetrical, also the other part earns 10 ballots to the center and - at the end - nothing changes. But in truth the center is so volubile..and politics unfortunately is not one mathematical demonstration (or perhaps).
