Hunger strikes, struggle, and history at UVM; also, the web design survey.

In light of the recent UVM SLAP hunger strike, someone sent me a fascinating (and disturbing) account of UVM History.

One directory up there is more information, some of it much deeper. See the History of Racial Diversity, LGBTQA History, and the President’s Commission on the Status of Women. All recommended reads, wether you are part of our “sleepy” New England community or not.

I Took the 2007 SurveySpeaking of the status of women, there has been some discussion recently out there regarding the presence (or lack thereof) of women in IT fields. The organizers behind the web standards conference An Event Apart have begun looking for more information on this issue, including commissioning a report, and launching what is to be an annual survey. If are in the IT field and you haven’t taken it yet, well, what are you waiting for?

Oops, I almost forgot to mention my standard writing-about-my-employer “disclaimer” – I do work at UVM.
