Transparency and the government

These days, the word "transparency" is such a buzzword in the health and government communities. The FDA wishes to be more transparent. They've set up the FDA Transparency Blog. Pharmaceutical companies are doing things to become more transparent. Academic medical institutions are providing more faculty disclosures to be more transparent about industry relationships. The White House is becoming more transparent through its Open Government Blog. Will all these initiatives directed towards transparency revive the blogging industry?

Have you checked out these transparency-related blogs? Let me list them again:
Will we reach a point where we feel like all this transparency may actually be harmful? What if people can't handle all the truth? Maybe some people would rather live in ignorance. After all, ignorance is bliss, right?
