The Three "D"s Plus One – a Simple Framework for Contingency Planning I've been hearing from my colleagues in higher-ed IT that they are facing a critical lack ...

I'm pleased to announce that after some twenty years in CIO roles, I am planning for retirement from the California State University. I will continue through Spring 2022 in my current role while the CSU searches for a successor. I'm looking forward to developing my fledgling career as a songwriter ...

Personally, I am very happy that I no longer read this via email -- the Connect interface is quite good. The labelling is exactly why I love Slack -- channels give you a natural way to partition group communication.

To be clear Allen, "forming a committee" -- to me, that is a strategic issue. It's about governance and relationship building. Which brand of X to buy is not.

Thanks Marty, and good to hear from you. For me, it's not a matter of who to include, but what to discuss. I have no problem with it being an open forum, I would just like a place that had fewer tactical issues and more strategic ones. I appreciate the thoughtful responses from you & from others. - ...

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that at all -- clearly it's meeting a need for a lot of people, and that's good. However, I find myself wishing ...

So much good advice from so many people I respect. I'll just add that if you do the right thing, you may pay a price, but you will never regret it. Best of luck!

For me -- this new platform is a huge improvement over the 1990's Listserv technology. The ability to scan through and quickly see the topics of conversation and dip in on the ones that I am interested is so much better than getting hundreds of emails that I rarely get through. Thank you to everyone ...
