"Almost three years ago, I started blogging about the importance of transparency at my blog Transparent Uptime. I chronicled the benefits of being transparent in your companies handling of downtime and performance. I did case studies on transparency done right, and transparency done wrong. I spoke at conferences preaching the gospel of performance. What was a strange idea back then is now becoming obvious, especially to young companies. Just as things were ramping up, I was forced to put my blog on hiatus.
In the time since, I’ve been looking for someone to hand off the torch of transparency to. I’m really excited to be a part of the launch of Transparent Performance, a new online consortium that will bring together experts from around the industry to continue the transparency movement. Transparency isn’t about altruism, or being “good”. Transparency is good business decision. My hope is that Transparent Performance can help the industry cross the chasm, and make it both obvious and trivial to be transparent in your uptime and performance. If anyone can do it, these guys can.
