While I would love to go, I don't think I'll be able to make it unless I can find somewhere to stay that night in the Boston area. Otherwise it means I have an hour drive home late that night and then a 45 min-1 hour drive to the comp to be there before doors open in the AM....


oh, and btw....I never know in advance when the mit dances are since they never update their website anymore. anyone know if there's a reason for this?

Oy... you'd think finding one at MIT shouldn't be a problem... :(
Well you tend to get three kinds of webmasters --
1. Excited programmers who want to make the next great CMS system, which gets bogged down and never quite finished
2. People who say "d*mn the current system, I'm hand coding my new pages".
3. Excited semi-clueless person who looks at the co-mingled frankenstein mess left behind by multiple type 1s and 2s and has a mental breakdown and is next seen walking the streets wearing a "Will dance for food" sign.

Plus even when a particularly aggressive type 1 gets close to working system, no one actually spends time to either feed information to him or to the system themselves so its all for naught.

For the record, I've been a prominent example of a type 2 and so am definitely part of the problem :)

the cost of training is far greater than the cost of R&D, and implementation.

Eric, you should also mention those who try to do structural and organizational changes to the system, but get fed up. :)

In reality you just need someone to keep the front page reasonably up to date and toy with the other parts of the site at leisure - using, adapting, or ignoring the various mechanisms in place at any given time.

Making the web site everything it could be is an unapproachable task. Making it what it needs to be is not too bad, and making it a little bit more a nice spare time activity.
