With These Kinds of Savings, We Won't Need Furloughs


I wrote this cartoon Wednesday night. Thursday morning, our designer tells me about a meeting she had on Wednesday with our web governance committee that was pretty much exactly this cartoon.

I can't win for losing.

I had no foreknowledge of this meeting or its contents, and I attest that this cartoon has nothing to do with any meeting or meetings that may or may not have actually taken place on this or any other university, community college, high school, primary, secondary or private school in this or any other country on this or any other planet in this or any other alternate universe.

I think that I'll include that as a general disclaimer in all my cartoons.

Oh Lord, I've been in that meeting, except it was a university site less attractive than Brown's that they wanted to copy wholesale.

I wouldn't worry about it. About two years ago, our Web Design committee had a similar meeting. It appears to be a universal part of the process.

Where's the meeting where they drop a bomb like this, then go on hiatus for 4 months (3 for summer, 1-2 we;re too busy with start of school) during the summer when you need them to approve something?

All in all though, wb TFRL - sorely missed =)

Everyone knows that Brown University is the homepage design of choice for blatant code theft ;-)
