A new study released by U.S. Department of State’s Office of eDiplomacy in the Bureau of Information Resource Management and Rice University looks at the five-year history of creating and implementing the Department’s use of the Wikipedia-styled diplomacy Web 2.0 tool, Diplopedia.
Diplopedia is the U.S. State Department's internal knowledge sharing platform – an internal, unclassified, open source wiki platform of 'how-to' knowledge for America's diplomatic corps.
The paper, “Diplopedia Imagined: Building State’s Diplomacy Wiki,” is being presented at the 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems in Chicago by its coauthors Tiffany Smith, a State Department employee in its Bureau of Information Resource Management and Chris Bronk, a fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute Public Policy and lecturer in Rice's Department of Computer Science."
