Who Runs Gov Wiki

The Washington Post launched its new wiki “Who Runs Gov ,” a site dedicated to becoming a database of United States government officials.  It claims to offer a “unique look of Washington through key players and personalities.”

The Who Runs Gov makes a couple departures from Wikipedia which also contains profiles of many politicians. Profile changes are not visible until site staff approve them.  Officials are allowed/encouraged to edit their own profiles.  Also, purely government personality profiles are more consistent and aim to be predictable.
