More transparency goodness

This time it comes from Andrew McAfee, who is quickly moving to my read-first list:Enterprise 2.0 Insecurities.

Let me end this post by suggesting a though [sic] experiment. Imagine two competitors, one of which has the guiding principle "keep security risks and discoverability to a minimum," the other of which is guided by the rule "make it as easy as possible for people to collaborate and access each others' expertise." Both put in technology infrastructures appropriate for their guiding principles. Take all IT, legal, and leak-related costs into account. Which of these two comes out ahead over time? I know which one I'm betting on.

In a nutshell, if you don‘t get this you‘re screwed!
