News from the UVic Alumni Association

I just gave a young woman calling from the UVic Alumni Association a bit of a hard time, as I do anyone calling me unsolicited.

I asked a bit about their online progress. It turns out you can donate online, although predictably the entire site seems to be kept up to date using manual updates and Dreamweaver templates.

What would I like from my Alumni association? Well, a Web 2.0 website with profiles of my former classmates would be nice, as well as the option to subscribe to news via RSS. Perhaps that's asking a bit much. I'm stilling following LinkedIn with interest: they actually manage some group affiliations, like these alumni associations.

But, I guess I only get to complain if I get involved and try and help out. Time to go find out who to contact at UVic.
