More Chris Anderson on radical transparency

Chris Anderson continues his great posts on radical transparency. These are must reads... From, What would radical transparency mean for Wired:

THEN: Bookmarks and habit drive traffic to the home page; site architecture and editorial hierarchy determines where readers goes next. Portals rule.
NOW: Search and blog links drive readers to individual stories; they leave as quickly as they come. "De-portalization" rules.

My only disagreement is with this whole “foothills” thing. Where it makes for an interesting photo montage, the metaphor only exists to make the old-school folks believe there is some hope for them going forward. It will be a very small window indeed. Those foothills will quickly erode and all that will remain will be alluvial fans.
