All over the world, the way people connect and collaborate is undergoing an astonishing transformation. Smart organizations are shunning their old, secretive practices and embracing transparency. Companies are widely sharing intellectual property and releasing patents. And movements for freedom and justice are exploding everywhere as organizations like Wikileaks spread information faster than every before. Though these movements may differ, they all share one idea: radical openness. In their compelling new book RADICAL OPENNESS, Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams show how this revolutionary new philosophy is affecting every facet of our society, from the way we do business to whom we chose to govern us. But while radical openness promises many exciting transformations, it also comes with new risks and responsibilities. How much information should we share and with whom? What are the consequences of disclosing the intimate details of our business and personal lives?
