IT Advice

eWeek has published a brief but timely article that is applicable to our work in education:

10 More Stupid Things Smart IT People Still Do

Here is a sampling of easy trappings they recommend you avoid:
  • Cast a jaded eye on emerging technologies and modes of delivering technology.
  • Ignore investment in training and professional development.
  • Look at security purely from a technical standpoint.
  • Don't let vendors set the technology timetable, but also don't
    stay informed about forthcoming updates and their potential benefits.

  • Don't make time for reading news and analysis, especially for reading industry and peer-driven blogs.
  • Let your disaster recovery plan lie dormant.
You can view all ten items of advice at eWeek.
