Technology and the Lord of the Flies

Ever felt like you as the admin become feared and resisted rather than appreciated? You’re no longer the helpful heroic huckster but rather the dark shadowy guy behind the curtain who magically does stuff and changes stuff and generally is a menace to the peace of the norm?  …who has imposed over the threshold of tolerance of mild mannered meandering innocent users such that courteous, collaborative, and professional relationships turn dark, cynically saturated, and ugly?

It’s the island of the Lord of the Flies and the savages are yelling out ‘Piggy’.  They want you at the stake and the bonfire is alight.

… well you have my sympathies

 now buck up and get back to work

Our job is fantastic.
