A couple of days ago Wired News wrote a story about CalTech graduate student Virgil Griffith who wrote a tool that allows the reverse lookup of IP addresses of those who make Wikipedia edits. So far, Diebold, the CIA, and political campaigns have edited their entries for their own purposes. Also, the music labels have edited the entry for “copyright” to build a historical case for digital rights management by citing Mozart, Handel, and the Library of Alexandria. Sneaky bitches!
