Question on being Open…

One of the things I am grateful for in working for Mozilla is the opportunity to learn.

Recently through various channels, I’ve learned about values, trust and integrity.  (Side note: I highly recommend the book that I am currently reading : The Speed of Trust)

Values are highly important to people and the company/culture.  ( Side note: I also found that for those that throw away the very value that they are trying to protect at all cost will find themselves very miserable. )

Maybe I am dumb; I don’t understand a few things still though and I need help understanding it after even having worked 4 years at the company.  These are the top two things that still cause me to wonder:

1) How does one stay open about protecting privacy/IP and how can we protect privacy/IP and still be open?  And without being miserable?

2) How do we stay open in a fast moving environment where we’re constantly busy?  The context of this is that I had been talking to a few coworkers and when we were talking, I happened to tell them something they weren’t aware of.  The expression “oh I wish I knew that sooner” was stated.  Blogs and emails can be missed often, and in some people’s cases skipped from being read; miss a meeting and you won’t hear about it.  Asking around and trying to get the source of truth sometimes is hard and doesn’t scale, etc. etc.  Everyone has a different way of working it seems… how do you get the source of truth and maintain doing the work load of going faster?
