Intellipedia Expert to Speak at Web 2.0 Conference

Chris Rasmussen, Chief Knowledge Officer at the Defense Department’s National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, will speak at the Web 2.0 for Business conference this November. Rasmussen has spearheaded Intellipedia, the Wikipedia for the Intelligence community. Intellipedia allows for employees across the 16 United States intelligence agencies with classified clearances to edit and publish information.

One of the major differences with Intellipedia, as Rasmussen outlined in webcast presentation available here, is that there are no anonymous edits. This means everyone is accountable for the content they publish and edit.

“In the intelligence business, something that is 80 percent on time, accurate and sharable is much more valuable than a perfectly formatted report that’s over classified, has perfect fonts and comes too late,” Rasmussen said in a recent interview with Federal Computer Week.

Rasmussen will speak on his experiences in developing the intelligence community’s social-collaboration projects as well as his perspective on the web 2.0 world and its impact within the federal government.

If you have a moment, head over to Federal Computer Week to view Rasmussen’s full webcast. The presentation is a great Intellipedia 101.
