Comments of the Week: Cheers, trolls, and dynamic innovation

Some time has lapsed between Vox‘s previous Comments of the Week, but all you commenters have continued to dutifully log on to anonymously tell the whole Internet what you think. We saw campus plan get its final, final, final stamp of approval, and got distracted by a bunch of LinkedIn trolls. Then we started thinking about the class of 2016, as Vox started preparing freshman for three of four (last one to come soon!) of Georgetown’s fantastic undergraduate schools. Here’s what some of you had to offer.

After Vox reported that the Zoning Commission erupted in cheers at the final passing of the campus plan, not typical anymore offered this. To steal from another commenter, this is how liberty dies:

Yay! Everyone cheer for mediocrity!

Let me just come out and say that I wasn’t learned enough to get this (Editor’s Note: Connor, summer watching assignment!). Alex had this to say about the conservative trolls posting on the GU LinkedIn page:

There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.

Vox also prepped the freshmen about their academic lives in the SFS. This, by d00$h:

Also you forgot the most important thing for SFS freshmen to know : you’re not special. Jesus doesn’t love you any more nor are your classes harder/more prestigious than many other departments here. And in the words of an inspiring and eminent professor here “the SFS is the result of a government professor getting too big of a head and deciding he wanted to be a dean, like the ILL was”

We were all thinking it. Someone had to say it.

Finally, last Friday, Georgetown announced that Hoyamail will soon become Google Apps. Vox commenters are prepared for the worst. SFS’12 thought our University has a silly office or two:

Does anyone else find it ridiculous that GTown has a “Chief Innovation Officer”?

And Dave Huth gave us valuable advice about strip clubs and Google:

Queue up Men At Work – ‘It’s a Mistake’. Nothing good happens at a strip club at 2am, nor with Google Apps, get your resume ready CIO.

At the rate we’re going, I expect to see a director of synergy within the year. Then Georgetown’s Board of Directors will force Jack DeGioia’s resignation for not having enough strategic dynamism.

  1. It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.
