As I was working through the references in a draft document recently, I ended up for the first time in a corner of Intelliepedia. Intellipedia is an open source, unclassified Wiki project hosted by the Intelligence Community, a diverse group of agencies with a common agenda. This seems to be a vital resource which supports some number of groups and it should be considered as an emerging community of practice. It is an interesting experiment, one that I hope will continue for a while and not, like most Government programs, be stifled by the misperceptions, internal politics and under-funding which are the nature of bureaucracy. Does anyone remember the fate of the “e-Gov” initiatives which were the darlings of the new administration just a few short years ago?
