Google D.C. Talk next Friday: National Security and Web 2.0

An explosion in Web 2.0 tools over the past decade has changed the way the U.S. military and intelligence community operate. Soldiers use Web-based, collaborative technologies to aid combat operations in Iraq, and tens of thousands of individuals from the 16 intelligence agencies regularly turn to Intellipedia, a classified wiki aimed at helping analysts share information.

Join us next week for a Google D.C. Talk that will look at how and why these communities are using web-based tools to organize and share information. We'll also discuss the technical and cultural challenges to adapting Web 2.0 technologies to the national security realm.

The event will take place on Friday, June 12 at Google's Washington office:
