Submission + - Government editing our wikipedia? (globalresearch.ca)

PsEvo writes: ""CalTech graduate student Virgil Griffith built a search tool that traces IP addresses of those who make Wikipedia changes."

Griffin's intentions were to catch scandals and other illegal operations, but it looks like he found more than expected. The database now holds over 34 million edits, many of which are from Microsoft, the CIA, and other large corporations. Companies like Diebold, Microsoft, and Wal-Mart, have made edits to wikipedia, some of which include the deleting of multiple paragraphs."
