Profound meditation on corporate websites from XKCD

It's so true, it's not even funny.


  1. For my college, the left circle would be almost exclusively SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS. Don't believe me? I was sooo happy when one of our faculty got a Fulbright and that was the first link "above the fold"! And now that's gone again.

    I showed this same comic to Lisa a few days ago. Painfully true. Except now the faculty in her department don't even HAVE individual phone numbers. They cut their office lines to save money; now you can only call the main office and they can take a message. They say that the faculty have personal cell phones they can use for regular calls, but who in their right mind gives out their personal cell # to students?

    Just another example of a business approach being totally inappropriate for an academic setting and our raft of administrators and managers being too stupid to see the point.
