Philanthropists and nonprofits - staff and board members - should read Dyson's column and consider how they meet (or fail to do so) these standards of transparency. And if they don't meet them, how might they? And when they don't meet them, who will be watching?
My disclosure: Esther Dyson and I have both served on the Advisory Board to CompuMentor. I am now on the Board of CompuMentor. I am a daily reader of HuffPo.
