Wikiscanner

I’ve been peripherally following reactions to wikiscanner. Wikiscanner reviews who (by IP address) has made changes to wikipedia. It’s an interesting experiment, but not much more. After all, is anyone really surprised that Iran has made changes? Or CIA? Or the government of Australia? The real story here is not that certain organizations have made changes to wikipedia – that should be assumed. The story instead is about how our digital activities leave trails that can be explored years down the road.
