New tech, same as the old tech

29 October 2008

Those of you who know me will be astounded to learn that I’m using Flash. What you won’t be astounded by is that I’m using it to caption video. 🙂

I am really enjoying my new job. The people are great, the work is good, and challenging, but well within the realm of do-able. Plus, I have my own thermostat. I miss my friends at Brown, but we’ve kept in touch, which is nice. I now fill my car’s gas tank once every three weeks or so. Can’t complain about that.

Lately, I’ve been focusing a lot on CMS analysis. It seems like a lot of the decisions we’re working on making and the changes we’re moving towards are things I was involved in five years ago. The good thing is, there’s five years more research and experience in the world to tap into. To that end, you may be interested to see what peer institutions are doing in the realm of content management. 129 self-selected web developers answered a long and very informative survey regarding their experience with CMS products (homegrown, commercial, and open source). Take a look. (Requires Flash. Sigh.)
