Haha, good stuff! I think there have been a lot of us recently having to deal with this same issue. I done some presentations on Flickr and everyone loves it except for one person and the whole project gets shot down. I have not given up my fight though. Geotagging typically impresses people as well, so try that as a selling point! That and the Flickr API is practically limitless with all the third party viewers/programs out there.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH, get real people! So frustrating. Makes me want to set a binder of photos on fire and then explain how they could have been saved.

Haven't seen much fire in TFRL lately... :)

@ jeremy.. Higher ed is place where a single "NO" vote carries more weight than 25 "Yes" votes!

Our marketing people refuse to give us their images for use on the interweb unless we guarantee to "prevent them from being downloaded"... wtf! If I mentioned Flickr their heads would probably implode.

We asked our vendor to visit and demonstrate how our CMS could be used to automatically convert photos into web format. (Note I already do it on our dev system.) After four hours it was decided that it needs more consultation across the campus and we should draft a plan to manage an implementation project next year. wtf! It's an automated process!

We're switching from using a network drive to using {flickr clone} to archive our photos, because our Tech Dept has decided to abolish network drives in favor of everything being in Blackboard.

So that's crazy.

Also, our permission forms for the photos we have don't cover us giving those photos to another site for them to distribute, nor do they cover selling those photos, which {flickr clone} does.

So I mean, your comic sort of messed up, but I can't help but think about how screwed we are. :(
