SuperPoke and Dagger

Posted by evankessler on September 5, 2008

One of the more interesting and puzzling news stories I’ve seen in the past few days that is not related to McCain’s VP, was CNN’s article on the Social Networking site for spies. A-Space is a social-networking site for analysts within the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies that allows them to share secret intelligence data, sensitive information regarding pressing world issues, and even gives them the option to collect friends. Way to publicize a secret network of information between spies and just who those spies are! That should give international hackers plenty of reason to attempt to infiltrate your network.

While Central Intelligence is busy destroying all exciting and romanticized notions of “Cloak and dagger” such as covert suitcase exchanges, in favor of Superpoking each other with secret files and throwing bowtie cameras at each other, perhaps an enemy developer should be busy creating an online Risk application so that staffers spend the majority of their time challenging each other in Hasbro’s game of strategic conquest instead of doing actual work. You know, sort of like scrabulous did for the masses.
