On-line social networking, spies and anti-terrorism initiatives

The BBC (Business) reported yesterday that the CIA has launched an on-line social networking website for its employees.

The CIA's so-called A-Space aims to improve the way that intelligence agents communicate and allow staff to better analyse information together.

It is also believed that such infrastructures would help break down some of the physical communication problems in the intelligence community.

It's ironic that the CIA has been heavily criticised over the events of 9/11 because its many functions did not always work effectively and cooperatively.
