IT: Got No Idea

Exchange a few minutes ago as I’m walking into work. The elevator’s arrived and I’m stepping on when a fairly attractive young woman approaches, and then suddenly stops and flips through her purse.

Her: Do you know where the meeting is? I’ve got no idea where to go.
Me, looking like a young student-to-be that may be going to this meeting but really isn’t: I’m not sure…I’m just headed up to the fifth floor, IT, not sure about any meeting.
Her: I don’t even know what that is, but OK, I’m sure I’ll find out.

This post started with an intellectually-elite-assholish way of thinking that she “absolutely should know what IT is if she’s going to college,” but then I realized that her life is probably simpler on a magnitude of about 3 million without knowing all that, so maybe it’s not so bad. Let’s hope nobody shatters her innocence until she’s good and ready.

Pre-Class Briefing

Good morning folks…we’re still in a “Potentially Dangerous Situation.” Well, “Danger” is my middle name. (William, too, but I digress.) I caught some impressive stuff on the radars out of Missouri and Kansas last night — let’s hope that stuff trends away from here.

Last night I made the final steps toward getting the CofC IT pages ready for launch, and it appears that they did indeed get revealed to the world this morning. While I had little input on the design, I took care of a LOT of the plumbing. I likened it to getting in a field of about 1500 cats and trying to round them up and get them to sit straight. Very difficult. You can see the fruits of our labor here. You might recognize the student worker who was recognized…

It’s just so nice to have a refreshing rush of normalcy — and on that note, off to class I go.

Catch you all later…
