This week, I am…
I’m working on a talk around website governance. I have a lot of experience with HiEd website governance but not other sectors. It has been really enjoyable going around and talking to people and learning how they view website governance.

It is evolving but right now here are the definitions I’m exploring.
What is Website Governance?

The human and technical systems, policies and procedures to manage website operations.

Why use Website Governance?

Offers peace of mind to focus on what matters and increased productivity through consistency at scale.

What I am Most Excited About
I spent all morning in a call queue and finally got through. I secured tickets for a Halloween event that sells out quick. It’s a hay ride through a cemetery where local actors dress up as figures buried there and tell their stories. It’s organized by a historian who does a ton of research to bring these nearly forgotten stories back to life.

A few years ago the mayor who put STL in lockdown during the influenza epidemic was one of the ghosts on the tour. It was wild to then see that story on the global stage as discussions of COVID responses came to the forefront.
