Two nations are in thy womb


Today, the Office of University Relations officially introduced WesLink. In what appears to be a campus-wide email, they describe WesLink as a place where:

[…] alumni, faculty, students, and staff can […] post non-Wesleyan sponsored events, announcements, activities, and services to the greater Wesleyan community.

It goes on to suggest that you “use WesLink to invite Wesleyan alumni to your concert, theater production, or comedy event; promote your new book or upcoming book signing; list your rental property; recruit Wesleyan alumni to help with your community service project; market your business; find a ride to campus for Reunion & Commencement Weekend; and much more!”

Could this be University Relations’ adult-safe answer to Wesleying? Or is it simply an innocuous place to brag about your latest book? And will the elder serve the younger? You decide.

    I’m writing an article about this for the Argus. It was an in-house project, i.e., the people who made it were already employed by the University.

    Wesleyan really likes to write their own software for stuff like this so they can be “original” aka waste even more money and make a site that still sucks and has no useful content…

    Look at the Wes classifieds in your portfolio and then look at Weslink. Doesn’t seem like they wated much time or money applying the template for a new app…

    They hired somebody to make this, and it doesn’t even look like they used a freely available web publishing package.

    Er. While hosting is not that expensive, the man power needed to *create* a website is not something to be dismissed.And I’m fairly certain this is not an answer to Wesleying – if memory serves, this has been worked on in one form or another for quite some time.

    Hate to break it to you but hosting a website, especially when they already have a much bigger one, is really not a waste of all that much money.
