blogs and knowledge management

If you're making the case for a blog for your organization, consider today's cover story in the New York Times magazine, "Open-Source Spying." It describes the way U.S. intelligence agencies have begun using blogs and wikis -- protected from outside eyes, but shared between and among the intelligence agencies -- to share information about terrorist threats. If your organization also is moving from a "need-to-know" to "need-to-share" culture, as one young analyst described it, you may need at least an internal blog, behind a firewall, to use all the information collected by your many eyes and ears.
