This is my last post before HighEdWeb. Sorry prophead, but your fate will hang in the balance all week. I actually don't have any ideas on how to save him from his well-deserved fate, so I'm open to suggestions.
OK, so seriously I'm divided on this issue. On the one hand I hate the oppression of committees in forcing everyone to do things the same way and to get approval. On the other hand, I've seen way too many crappy Web sites go out on campus that have no campus branding, are poorly designed, confusingly organized, and horribly written. Having a central body to enforce minimal standards actually serves to improve the overall campus Web presence.
What to do, what to do? Honestly, I hate to side with the forces of darkness, but I think the benefits of enforcing standards on a university Web site outweigh the value the individual freedom that departments are used to having. In the particular case at hand (which, of course, as always, NEVER EVER happened) though, I thought the response was a bit heavy-handed.
BTW, there's an obscure movie reference in this comic. Who knows what it is?

OK, I had a totally different cartoon to upload this morning, but I was pretty sure that posting that one would cost me my job, so I went with one that's not controversial in any way.
I just hope they wait to fire me until after the HighEdWeb conference next week!
