On Installing a New University President November 20, 2011

I thought for a second and then replied, “It is a technological metaphor. For the first hundred days or so, we were downloading our new president, and once the download was complete, we installed him.”

    Interesting.  So how to we go about pushing out updates? When do we decide to upgrade to OS President 6.1?

    😉

    And what if version 6.0 catches a virus?

  • *snort*! Well said, sir!
