Holden at Clear Fund posts Foundation Board minutes to web in bid for transparency. Give and Take at the Chronicle asks, "Is transparency a good idea?" No comments at Give and Take as of my post here. At a Regional Association of Grantmakers meeting, I happened to overhear Senator Dick Minim's mother, Mummy Minim, murmur, "Quite appalling, really. Holden is such a brash young boor. Harvard yes, Yale no. Thank God." More on transparency at Tactical Philanthropy with Jim Canales, of The James Irvine Foundation. I do wish Hudson Institute would post their Board Minutes, and hallway conversations too. I am not interested in what Holden says behind closed doors. He has no secrets worth knowing. I am very interested in what Conrad Black says off the record to the flacks and hacks. A transparent think tank? All closed door sessions recorded and posted to the web? Now that would be good for democracy.
