Radical transparency

Chris Anderson nails it: In Praise of Radical Transparency. He promises to discuss it more. Can‘t wait!

One of the most fascinating features of the blogging era has been the inversion of corporate norms. As the tools of production and distribution are democratized, institutions lose power and individuals gain it. As the Web becomes the greatest word-of-mouth amplifier in history, consumers learn to trust peers more and companies less. And as the same trends play out within the firm, businesses are shifting from command and control to "out of control", distributing more and more power to the rank and file.

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