On Best Practices

The previous semester had me pouring a good deal of time and more than a pound of neurons into an ethics portfolio as part of the requirements for a class in computer ethics. It was then when blogging and my internet journeyman experience came in handy. I was surely thankful all those times and effort I put into writing and wandering around in cyberspace turned out to yield something to my favor after all.

For instance, here’s the Sept 3 Dilbert strip which turned out handy in one of the pages of my submission:

Boss: We will be adopting the best practices in our industry, just like
everyone else.
Dilbert: If everyone is doing it, best practices is the same thing as mediocre.
Boss: Stop making mediocrity sound bad!
Dilbert: Sorry.

Apart from the humor, it sure proves to be a worthy old-content kicker here too.
