  1. 08-18-07 Seeing Corporate Fingerprints in Wikipedia Edits (New York Times)
      "The site, wikiscanner.virgil.gr, created by a computer science graduate student, cross-references an edited entry on Wikipedia with the owner of the computer network where the change originated, using the Internet protocol address of the editorís network. The address information was already available on Wikipedia, but the new site makes it much easier to connect those numbers with the names of network owners.

      "Since Wired News first wrote about WikiScanner last week, Internet users have spotted plenty of interesting changes to Wikipedia by people at nonprofit groups and government entities like the Central Intelligence Agency. Many of the most obviously self-interested edits have come from corporate networks." 08-07
