Venture NoSpin

The Birmingham Business Journal (sub) lets Blueprint Birmingham advocates know that evasiveness and BS won't be enough to win support for the civic economic transformation initiative. Blueprint leaders are apparently behind schedule in divulging details of their campaign's progress, strategy, etc. Our view: Granted, economic conditions have left every endeavor fraught with uncertainty. No better time to err on the side of transparency in our dealings, particularly when trying to open a new front on innovation for the New Economy in Birmingham, or Nashville. Enough of the smoke, mirrors, spin and BS. Straight talk brings more unity, wisdom and genuine sustainable enthusiasm for progress.
