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.

Post Meeting info

We had a few links mentioned at the meeting and I thought I’d post them here before I forgot about them: - a sample privacy statement - the new League Of Professional System Administrators - We had a discussion on translating /looking up substitutions for internationalisation. - When request meets implementation - Some sysadmin humour (dark humour in some cases)
