> Tries to sell an image of openness to the world, when facts point to the contrary
I’ve seen this once or twice before. What I wonder about, is how you build a governance structure around openness that works. At about 5–6 people I think founders start to realize, you can’t consult everyone about everything — decisions have to be made more quickly than that would allow — and you have to keep some things secret. This results in a whipsaw away from transparency.
