So I have a new job, at the Gila Conservation Education Center helping to run their "trunk education" program. It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun.

One tiny problem though. Their website is really bad. I mean, writing running into the dark green background and non-existent links. I, somewhat roundabout and quiet, brought up the question of if they were going to have someone fix it (I would. Seriously.). My supervisor said it's not a priority. They use the page editor the host provides them and last time the format got screwed up. It doesn't matter really. As long as the information is there, that's all he cares about. I wanted to cry. I mean I sort of respect his point. Except that presentation is important. It totally does represent you to the rest of the world. And maybe the people they're trying to reach most don't use internet, but I have formed opinions about institutions related to the user-friendlyness and design of their web pages. I have. I know people that do. It's not totally a non-issue.

I don't like to think of myself as elitist. But maybe I am. Just a bit.
