U.S. military needs wikis, video sharing, defense expert says

The U.S. military should embrace user-driven Web services such as wikis, video-sharing sites and social networking sites as its focus grows to include providing more security and reconstruction help, a defense analyst recommended today.

The military is increasingly moving toward a role where it will share responsibilities with organizations outside the U.S. government, including charitable organizations, international aid groups and even private businesses, said Guy Ben-Ari, a fellow in the Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank.
