Corruption Chronicles is a labor of love by one citizen, and is replicated tens of thousands of times around the world.  Goggle does not provide the needed architecture for being able to aggregate and then de-aggregate this kind of information by name, place, event, and so on, but the day is coming when the public will be able to amass and share better information about anyone in public service than the government bureacracies are now able to amass on indviduals.  It’s the difference between Weberian cetralization with its knowledge cubbies, and open decentralization with its infinite linkages.  To understand this concept, start with David Weinberger’s Everything Is Miscellaneous–The Power of the New Digital Disorder.
