 I'm new to this list, so please forgive me if this question has been asked before.

Does anyone know when and where terms like eGovernment, eDemocracy and ePetitions came about?
Or  e-government, e-democracy and e-petitions, as they were 10 years ago.

I'm particularly interested in the term eParticipation, but it's clear that it derived from eDemocracy etc
(or it certainly seemed to, in my experience of its appearance)

Thanks for your help
