One day, not so very long ago, Ieuan walked into our weekly staff meeting and cheerfully said “Let’s re-skin CUinfo!”
Will’s jaw went a little slack. Diane’s expression grew pained. And me…I just laughed out-loud.
Truth of it is, CUinfo has been on our to-do list since the earliest days of Thomas Richardson’s tenure. His eyes used to get all sparkly when he talked about “fixing CUInfo” and he always said it with these really board hand gestures to accompany the phrase. I frequently laughed at him, too.
But the joke, apparently, is on yours truly.
We are about to embark upon a plan to (ultimately) bring CUinfo under the cornell.edu umbrella and the first step is the re-skinning project.
Yes, really. We’re going to re-skin it.
Would you like a moment to angst about this? Because I could leave you alone and go get a bagel or something.
Seriously, though, we do recognize that this has a potentially huge impact on the Cornell community and we do want to give you a chance to voice your opinions. As the project progresses, you can expect screen shots and posts that resemble the ones from the summer of 2004 when we were re-designing cornell.edu.
Right now, we’re still in the very early stages. This re-skin will literally be just that. All of the information on CUinfo will remain intact and will be presented in a design that is as close to the current one as bringing it into the cornell.edu design family will allow.
Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments and questions. All are welcome.
Remember, change is good,
