Disclosure policy I will do my best at all times to fully disclose my affiliations or if I am a stakeholder in what I write about in this blog if it has any business-related relevance. If I’m under an NDA or a client asks me not to be listed and gives good reasons, I will not disclose the details here, but in this case I would not write about said project/client/thing. (This happens very rarely.) Small once-off gigs might also not be listed. If it is even in the least relevant (endorsements, blog posts etc), I will of course fully disclose any client relationships.
