September 5, 2008: The CIA, the FBI, and the National Security Agency are planning to launch a new social networking site called A-Space on September 22, 2008. Members of the American intelligence community with the right security clearance and a need to know particular information will be able to retrieve it quickly and efficiently.
Game and Story Use
- If a hacker gains access to a high-clearance A-Space account, he will be able to retrieve an enormous amount of secret information. This could be either the PCs, or their enemies (if the PCs themselves work for these agencies).
- Such social networking sites might become the norm for intelligence agencies Twenty Minutes Into The Future.
- The other way to run this would be to put other people's spies onto a "facebook", thus making them useless as agents to against anyone with access to the data (and the competence to use it…).
