Submission + - Top Secret America (washingtonpost.com)

__aaelyr464 writes: The Washington Post published an immense interactive website today, detailing the companies and Government agencies currently doing Top Secret work in the United States. Everything from counter-IED operations to human intelligence is touched upon. Citing various interviews with "super users" and through exhaustive analysis of public records for over two years, this interactive site allows users to peer into the guarded world of top secret intelligence. With more than 854,000 people currently holding a TS clearance, has the Defense and Intelligence world grown too big, too fast? Or has this large growth served us well, exemplified by no successful terrorist acts on US soil since 9/11? How can we judge the success of these programs, when much of it will never be known by the general public?

Submission + - Google Acquires Metaweb (blogspot.com) 1

eldavojohn writes: "A startup called Metaweb (looks like an ontological entity-based approach to Web 2.0 tagging) has been acquired by Google. You can find out what they're about from a super marketing fluff video they put together. The neat thing about Metaweb is that the database of entities it has is free. Will Google be able to make Metaweb work on their omniscient scale or was this just Google making sure a startup doesn't become yet another player in search?"
