CTO of the Center for Mission Innovation at CIA presents these slides today, 18 July, at the NSF's Collaborative Expedition Workshop, where "Participants will explore opportunities for multi-disciplinary and community-based collaboration around national challenges."
The briefing is also available in a PowerPoint version.
Complexity theory suggests that from intelligence officers who are allowed to share information and act upon it within a simple tradecraft regime will emerge an intelligence community that continuously and dynamically reinvents itself in response to the needs of the national security environment.
* At CIA, we have created nearly 500 internal blogs in the last 6 months. (a few dozen are active)
* We have an internal Wiki that has generated about 10,000 pages in about a year.
* Used for:
-- note taking,
-- floating/debating trial ideas,
-- broadcast communication,
-- drafting papers,
-- publishing finished pieces (rarely so far)
I think we have some some clue the IC would be interested in tapping into... We know how to route information so it better finds it's right place in the big picture.
