To expand. I assume the process is something like this:

1 Data/opinion/information gathering
2 Analysis
3 Formulation of position and/or conclusions
4 Communicate/publish position and/or conclusions

So far we've had some or all of 1. I'm just as much, if not more, 
interested in 3->4. I'd like to know that the info gathered from step 1 
has been "properly" represented in the later stages.

It's called transparency and evidence based policy development.

And relating the later steps to current technology crazes, I can't see 
much of a role for twitter type communications. IMHO, these steps 
require reflection and contemplation rather than instant decision making.

Does anyone do reflection and contemplation any more?
