Bureaucracy: ”

This is the geek story of the day. At work, we are going to have a giant videoconference (think nationwide) and we need a registration form for all the sites. Simple enough. Well, we axed most of our programmers because the big IT guys for agriculture didn’t like a department having their own programmers. That’s why I was asked to do it.

Problem: The Ag IT guys are in love with Microsoft and only accept ASP code and I tried to plead that I could do it in ten minutes using Rails. They don’t seem interested in that. Long story short, they are doing some time consuming task to get a simple registration form online and ready to go. Just to prove my point, I made my registration form in Rails. It took ten minutes.

I love Rails. I hate bureaucracy.
