This is a serious problem: how can we encourage people to make
information flow and not keep it secret!

But I think there is another aspect that restricts information flow: the
information is openly available, but the people affected do not see it,
because they were distracted, or it didn't catch their attention, or they
were uninterested, or they thought they already knew it...

Maybe this is even worse than unnecessary secrecy. What do you think?
