Meetings Be Gone

Posted Sep 07 2008 8:40pm

Meeting_2 I'm taking a couple days off from work to ride mountain bike on the most awesome FATS trail system here in SC. I'm really looking forward to it before the fall semester begins. The last thing I did at work before I left was to sit in a meeting. It was a typical meeting. As someone who likes speed and excitement rather than laborious discussion, meetings are not my best friend.

So, for all my friends in academia in particular and others who are subject to mind-numbing meetings, here are a couple links to ponder:

The Meeting Miser calculates the real cost of meetings based on pay scale. (And we wonder why education is so expensive!) I calculated that my meeting yesterday cost over $300 for my institution!

5 Alternatives to Meetings. This one is my favorite, of course!

Here's a cool video of the Brown Wave Trail at FATS. Way better than meetings!
