Chris Anderson, editor of Wired and author of The Long Tail, is no longer satisfied with mere transparency when it comes to running his magazine. It's time for radical transparency — open journalism, viewable by readers as it happens! Reader comments indistinguishable from stories! Topics arranged by popularity! Wikis everywhere! Workers control the means of production! Whores lay down with swine! Sounds like crazy talk, but Anderson floats the ideas along with supposed risks of each, countering that "in all these cases I think the upsides outweigh the downsides." But as usual, this latest Wired manifesto just doesn't go far enough.
