Intellipedia and Information Chains
Article about some of the latest developments in Intellipedia. Our early looks at this intelligence community resource, founded in 2006, indicated it was an architecture based on a number of interlinked wikis. Is Google's involvement an indication that this will primarily be driven by search? There have been some interesting criticisms of how such systems can effectively work in government (or in large corporations!) Notable quote: 'We have a command chain, not an information chain'. What are the important qualities of an 'information chain'? How do you make that deep architectural change happen? People engagement is key.
