People without organizational power but with great ideas need to get their message out.
If you hide yourself away, you might discover the elixir to organizational life and no-one would be better off.
Working out loud is what it’s called. Sharing what you know or believe is how it’s done.

It is also about missed opportunity. Who might want that data but is not cc’d?!
If you want to engage the right people at the right time, #NoEmail is something to consider.
