I’m sure that you cultured lot will have heard this famous Oscar Wilde quote
There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
This quote to me explains the latest craze of being overly unnecessarily transparent. Pure political spin and attention seeking. Struggling with funding? Someone send some ridiculous emails?
Write about it, wrap it up with some nice self pity and ship it out as a nice dose of transparency.
