Web 2.0 at the Department of Defense,129328-c,internetnetworking/article.html

The Department of Defense's Defense Intelligence Agency has been attempting to use Web2.0 technologies, starting with a wiki, since 2004. They are attempting to leverage wikis, mashups, blogs and RSS feeds to assist their analysts.

This is a departure from the standard use of technology in government where upgrading hardware and software could go for years and the latest and greatest web technologies are shunned for both security reasons as well as misunderstanding of their uses.

While we won't see these technologies in all levels of government for valid reasons, in certain aspects of the government we could see these technologies used more and more.
