I can’t remember when I first read about Intellipedia, but I know it was a long time ago. The other day I watched a really inspirational video from the people inside the CIA who successfully overcame typical middle-management obstacles in order to produce it. I particularly like their comments on the evils of email and shared drives for collaboration. The original proposal document is also well worth a read.

Interesting too that Intellipedia’s iVideo sharing component reportedly uses Adobe Flash, but there is no public mention of using visualization tools yet, despite visualization techniques being widely used in the intelligence analysis community.
