    Thanks for this comprehensive list; I'm clipping it.

    But where does it take us!!!! Although this was by no means an exhaustive review and I will also be drawing on other papers/ sources, for all the talk about transparency an blogging I was quite surprised by the lack of substantial discussion.

    PS. Are you going to Palo Alto?

    My posts on transparency have a lot to do with others lacking any sense of transparency. We need to be above the board, and too often we try to hide.


    No, unfortunately I'm not going. It would have been great to see everyone! I'm shooting for next year. Now, if there were just a major event like this in Washington DC...

    Thanks for this! Here's a comment I made to another post about synthetic transparency that you might want to add to this great list!

    Basically the discussion here is whether all blogs are INHERENTLY synthetically transparent or if synthetic transparency is a label we can apply to certain blogs (as a way of calling them out based on the violation of certain community standards) while calling other blogs authentically transparent.
