Although we are a community where sharing is key for what we do and what we want to achieve, we sometimes struggle upon our best intentions. Board work is an area where the nature of discussions is often confidential, sometimes personal or just happening among a small group of Board members. That makes it hard to let anyone outside know what is happening inside that obscure bubble. And there certainly is some risk that the reserve to tell too much results in a concrete or perceived lack of information over all. I’ve experienced that dilemma in several committees I’ve worked on and of course it is also true for the WMF Board of Trustees.
So I’m trying to find a balance, write a short blog post once or twice a month, talk about my personal thoughts and make the bubble less opaque. I’m just starting and I don’t know where it leads me. Stay curious. So do I.
