My position is a mish-mash of so many different things that I think it's impossible to pin down to an accurate position title.  We're inventing a new position but I can't even think what to call it! I'd love to know what others' positions are titled as (or ones that you've seen)! 

These are a few I've grabbed from email signatures: 
UI Architect
Senior User Experience Specialist
Web Communications Communicator

So, for the sake of discussion: what's YOUR position title?

I have progressed over 4 years:
Webmaster > Web Marketing Manager > Director of Web Marketing

Even though my title has changed, by and large my role hasn't.
My progression:
Website Administrator > Director of Web Communications > Web Usability Analyst
Previous employment I went from Webmaster to Web Manager. Current position (at new employer) Director of Web Marketing.

I guess it really depends on what your mish-mash consists of. Mine is predominantly a marketing role, but I also design, develop content, consult, and work with the developers.
LAN Systems Specialist. (It's a political thing)
2 years at Providence College
Asst. Director of Online Services (in IA)--->NOW Web Developer (IT)
Was focused on just the Alumni/Institutional Advancement web site, ecommunications & online community now taking a broader role on the technical side with the whole college's web needs and our redesign project.
Ugh, these titles will be the death of me. I used to be a Web Site Coordinator II, but since that mostly encompasses web content I've since been moved to "Systems Specialist". There are so few titles for developers in our state that we end up taking these over-generalized titles and make them fit for our purposes. I mostly develop code and train other web developers but Systems Specialist is the best we could do . . .

Are other states so behind on tech that they have to do this?
Web Content Manager
I think it's a bit lacking as I am the only web person on this campus but it works I guess.
Unfortunately the area where I work doesn't have much in the way of "actual" developer titles (yet... we're working on it). So my official title is "Information Specialist I" with a working title of "Web Programmer I".

If only salaries were determined more by job responsibilities than titles... then we'd be doing a bit better.
Sr. Programmer / University Webmaster -- beat that one!

My title is very broad for my job responsibilities are also very broad. The scope is made up of Server Administration, PHP Programming, Data Report Development, Usability Evaluation, Graphic Design & Flash, and Content Administration (just to name a few). I'm anything and everything web, although I think this is typical for a school our size.
How about e-marketing adviser or online communications consultant / adviser...
We have "official" titles and "working" titles, too, so I'm "Senior Information Technologist" on official documents, but my business card says "Manager of Web Communications". I do soup to nuts, from hand coding templates to LAMP dev to IA to user support to policy development.
Manager Web and Content Management Services
Clever how they repeated 'Manage' twice.
