Snippet on sys admin power and authority

This is an excerpt from a discussion on enforcing policy and the policy makers not wanting to be included in their own policy. It seemed appropriate to quote, because we sometimes lose sight of the enabled position we hold when we see the disconnect between policy and practice. We do have the ability to adjust attitudes and to convince the user community - which includes upper management, that following a sensible policy or practice is actually better for all concerned.

November Meeting

We have another meeting Thursday, Nov 17, 2005 at Altera. See the calendar for address information, or check the meeting location link at the top. We may even have a proposal for a new format to add some useful substance to these meetings - it’s a thought. In addition, I do not know how many people are members of Usenix and SAGE, but there have been some rather interesting developments in the past week.
