I just read this article... Why do I feel like this Wikileaks idea is a train wreck just waiting to happen? I think it's a wonderful idea in the sense that maybe, just maybe it will hinder oppression somewhere in the world. But I also wonder how much misinformation is going to appear, get edited, disappear, etc.
That's the nature of wikis, right? Sometimes errors are posted and, as the article says, they "will rely on the global community to police the material." That sounds good in theory, but how many angry employees are going to start posting all sorts of half-truths about their boss or the company they work for? How long will many of those posts sit unedited, all because someone thought they could really spread the rumors under a cloak of secrecy? How long will it take for the first company to track an employee's browser history or use some other means to pinpoint the post to them?
