How much of your information do you share? How much should corporations share? TED Books Q&A Friday at 3pm Eastern!

The way people connect and collaborate is undergoing an astonishing transformation. Smart organizations are shunning their old, secretive practices and embracing transparency. Companies are widely sharing intellectual property and releasing patents. And movements for freedom and justice are exploding everywhere.

In their new book, Radical Openness: Four Unexpected Principles for Success, authors Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams show how this revolutionary new philosophy is affecting every facet of our society, from the way we do business to whom we choose to govern us.
