A comparison of privacy issues in collaborative workspaces and social networks discuss privacy issues in Facebook and Wikipedia.

[edit] Critique

  1. The authors suggest "digital signatures to ensure the integrity of personal data". It is unclear why this would yield anything for Wikipedia as all edits are linked to a username.
  2. "Open source peer-to-peer networks to prevent all data being stored on a central server" Wikipedia already distributes most of the content (except, e.g., user passwords) in XML for others to control.
  3. The suggestion of Group encryption is not elaborated.
  4. "Allow use of multiple pseudonyms". This is already possible in Wikipedia, though in soe contexts it is considered socketpuppetry
