War and Web 2.0

My Web 2.0 company/community (like several other class members, I'm sure) is Google Earth.

However, I'm not sure I'm
a) ready
b) willing
to comment on this article from Business Week, other than to say that one's enemies can use the web to do more harm than simply changing the Wikipedia entry for Al-Qaeda to cast themselves in a more positive light.


PS- Start your own Web 2.0 company here.

3 years ago, I needed a secret clearance to look at satellite imagery of Iraq. Needless to say, I was befuddled a year ago when I saw a detailed overview of my base on google maps as public domain.
The article you referenced talked about how intelligent insurgents were to use this information, but how stupid were we to overlook it?
