I'm not going to disagree with that aspect of centralization. That's
not what I (meant to) address in the article, though. The author
seemed to desire the centralization of knowledge. Yep, it'd be nice
if everyone could only beg help of IT.

I know it is fashionable to consider them "lusers", but if this is
the kind of respect you have for your users, then I wouldn't want you
running my helpdesk.

Er... If I had a helpdesk, that is.


A choice between one man and a shovel, or a dozen men with teaspoons
is clear to me, and I'm sure it is clear to you also.
