We are having a debate on the use of Google docs in the organization.We currently use Google apps which includes mail, docs, calendaring, etc. We use their Postini/Vault service which keeps a permanent and discoverable record of ALL email which is very nice for our legal department. However, some have raised the issue about discover-ability (is that a word?) of Google Docs. My limited knowledge take is that it is not an issue any more than a file on a local hard drive is discoverable. …See More
"We use limelight cdn (limelight.com). The service has been very good and reasonably priced. The only real down side, which can be a factor, is the sale rep we have is not responsive. It usually takes me three emails (last one…"

"Hi Julie, I use a plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/page-links-to/) to set up simple page redirects. Using it at our root site to link to a deep page or an external page gives a 'short-ish' URL. brescia.uwo.ca/give/ is an example that…"
"Me neither :-) But when I tried to send you a message, it notified me that I could only message you if we're friends. I was curious about your experience with Wordpress as a CMS for your University website? We're a small University as well…"
My experience has been very positive. We are now running several WordPress multisites, and if I could encapsulate the results it would be:
Much improved editing experience for departmental users compared to other CMS.

"We did one in 2012 and 2013, but not 2014. We initially got caught up in the buzz because everyone was doing them, and it seemed like a fun idea. But this last cycle we were so busy with other projects we couldn't justify carving out the time.…"
We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More
