Even spooks are using Wikis

November 1, 2006

Reuters reports that the U.S. intelligence community on Tuesday unveiled its own secret internal wiki, saying that Wikipedia’s format is key to the future of American espionage.


No word as to what wiki platform they are running on, but given the comparisons to Wikipedia you’d guess they’re using mediawiki. Unfortunately the service wasn’t named spookipedia, but Intellipedia. Reuters does have some fun however, suggesting that the new wiki service could prevent further WMD-Iraq style situations.
