Enterprise 2.0 conf: From the bottom up: Building the 21st Century Intelligence Community

by David Spark on June 10, 2008

Sean Dennehy and Don Burke of the CIA showed off the structure of Intellipedia which is foremost a wiki for the Director of National Intelligence. The CIA was the pilot customer for Intellipedia and Burke and Dennehy are two of its leading advocates.

Intellipedia is a closed knowledge management system with three levels of access ranging from top secret, to secret, to sensitive but unclassified. But beyond just a wiki, Intellipedia has also become the brand name for a suite of other common Web 2.0 tools such as bookmarking and video. No need for me to go on and on explaining it. Dennehy and Burke posted all the information (and more) explaining it on the Enterprise 2.0 community site.

It wasn’t easy for them. Some saw their desire to create an intelligence information and social network as traitorous. Luckily, they were able to show that a government intelligence community with a wiki was possible for the intelligence community and its partners to answer the burning question of “What did you know, and when did you know it?”

Make sure you watch my video interview with Burke and Dennehy.

Make sure you check out the summary of all coverage from the Enterprise 2.0 Conference 2008 in Boston.
