logo_wiki identifies military, corporate, and governmental editors of Wikipedia (“the Free Encyclopedia”). It does this by tracing back the editor’s IP address. logo_wiki shows recently edited “diffs” pages (with changes highlighted) and shows who the shadowy editor is. logo_wiki does this by replacing the Wikipedia logo with the editor’s logo. Military, corporate and governmental users are responsible for many thousands of unacknowledged alterations to Wikipedia pages. logo_wiki reveals this process occurring in real time.
