1, 2, 3, Not it!

It's not possible to make this stuff up. I almost laughed and cried at the same time.

All Your Employees Are Belong to Us

This is what happens when you tell Tales from Redesignland that you 'try to fly under your radar'. Let this be a lesson to all of you!

All Aboard the Failboat

This week, there's been a lot of perceived process fail on campus. Lack of communication, lack of direction, reorgs lacking any clear purpose, people at cross purposes, unrealistic timelines, etc.

This cartoon started out to be a commentary on the general cluelessness of administration, but ended up being as much a commentary on our relentless griping about the cluelessness of administrators. Don't get me wrong, I'm as guilty (if not more so) than anyone else, but I don't think it's advancing our cause any.

We need to do our work well enough to try to get administrators to understand the value of what we're doing and the fact that there are processes that work - and work for a reason. Not always possible, but communication is a two way street.

That's why it's 'all aboard the failboat'. If we fail, we all fail together. That's when the finger-pointing begins.

Borg Reorg

We just found out yesterday that our small little Web development group is going to become part of another organization on campus.

OK, in reality the "Binary Operations Resource Group" is neither as big or as scary as the Borg (so chill out you guys over there in "Borg Hall"). But nobody likes reorgs, and this one
kind of took us by surprise.

I, for one, am looking forward to adding my biological and technological distinctiveness to the collective!
