Definition: Radical Transparency

Radical Transparency

Radical transparency is a phrase used across fields of governance, politics, software design and business to describe actions and approaches that radically increase the openness of organizational process and data. Also used for showing the internal workings of a product, service, or organization that are usually hidden from view, when applied even more innovatively than just within an organization.

 

The examples of radical transparency, when you can find it, are really refreshing and innovative for how things can be done within an organization! In an equally innovative way, the 99% Invisible podcast below talks about how the transparency was used to let customers/users fully look into the operations of something so they can appreciate what goes into it rather than oversimplifying it and not appreciating it. The best example, for me, was how the operators of the shinkansen high speed bullet trains in Japan let riders see the amazing work done by the cleaning crews in seven minutes between rides, turning it into a spectacle of theatrical wonder, rather than hiding it all and getting angry and impatient riders wondering why they have to wait “so long” to get on to the trains between rides! See video at bottom. Brilliant!

Hello Kitty / Sanrio Wallpapers (1280×1024 pixels)

This is a collection of 1280×1024 pixel Hello Kitty / Sanrio wallpapers.

Some wallpapers may be a bit bright for some people, but I didn’t like looking at these images either darkened or faded. There is a nice range of intensity among these wallpapers so hopefully, you’ll be able to find at least a few you like. You can either get one as a desktop wallpaper, or a set to use as your own Hello Kitty screensavers via instructions below.

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.

I hope you will enjoy these wallpapers!

Hello Kitty / Sanrio Wallpapers (1280×960 pixels)

This is a collection of Hello Kitty / Sanrio wallpapers 1280 x 960 pixels in size. For some reason, there aren’t a lot of these around as you might think. I made a lot of these from larger wallpapers, most of which I created, or smaller wallpapers, without losing noticeable quality because I threw out those that didn’t make the cut. I also don’t put advertising on my wallpapers.
