'Silver Lake Connection.com' will be Replacing Current, Unofficial SLI
News Blog Tuesday, Wednesday

The Silver Lake Institute and Publisher Greg Franklin have reached a fork in the road and each has willingly agreed to travel the two different paths when it comes to publishing SLI news, events, commentary, and basic contact information. Both the Silver Lake Institute and Greg Franklin's daily online publication informally subscribe to the concept of Transparency, but each defines it in somewhat different ways. By each taking their own path on this, beginning next week, both are more assured of compatability, smiles, and friendship continuing in the future.

"I am feeling good about this change," said Mr. Franklin, because it always bothered me that I was operating by the regular news media standards which effectively curtailed my friend Bill's ability to publicly function as he saw fit and as he has every right in the world to expect since he is the duly elected representative of the people." This might be more understood explaining it in the following way:

 Our Board president believes that transparency best takes place when people attend the Board meetings, listen to the committee reports, hear the pros and cons of the debate, each of which takes place before any final vote by the Board. Then, he believes the information which has received the final approval by the Board is then released to the public, usually in the form of the printed Board Minutes of the Meeting. (Bill, if I don't have it right, please speak up and let us know where I may have fallen short of your description.)

Your independent Publisher believes that transparency best takes place by publishing the ideas and proposals of the individual committees in public, so that there can be a public discussion of events or ideas. That way all people can be a part of learning what ideas are out there and about to be considered by the Board. Then, even if people are prevented from attending a Board meeting, the committees may choose to refine their proposals based on the public discussions, before asking the Board for their final approval.

Ironically,  we've been "kinda sorta" doing it both ways which should provide for even more discussion, but as you may already know, people are not spending any time on either public discussion nor on attending Board meetings for an official discussion. One thing which might help to encourage public discussion is if the Committees would decide to release either their Minutes or the bullet points of their meetings to the publication run by Mr. Franklin to see if that would help stimulate the public discussion. It has been said that people in general don't necessarily want others to know what they think, so discussion by the public in either forum is becoming a lost American art, having started back in New England; but neither Bill nor Greg are willing to give up on it.

At the present time, readers are accessing this blogging website by means of one of the following three URLs (World Wide Web addresses):
www.silverlakeinstitute.blogspot.com or 
www.silverlakeinstitute.org or 
www.sli.website. 

After next Tuesday or Wednesday, those three (3) above will be temporarily disconnected and the following URL addresses will be available to you for placement in your browser for the "MySilverLakeConnection" blog site:
MySilverLakeConnection.blogspot.com (or) 
SilverLakeConnection.com 

Eventually, the old Silver Lake Institute URL addresses will be reinstated to link to a new, static web presence--meaning one with less changes and more basic information, free from daily updates. This will be created and run through the auspices of the Silver Lake Institute. Keep an eye out for the changes beginning next week!
