Someone asked if I had built a 30 Questions exercise for anything other than universities. Most of the time I do them in my head and don’t bother to write them down. I did put one together for theaters a few years ago, though, so I’ve pulled it out and dusted it off.
This post, in which I get crotchety about faculty micromeddling, originally appeared Jul 7, 2014, on another blog of mine. In it you’ll find the origin story of the 30 Questions.
I developed the idea behind the 30 Questions exercise several years ago after a faculty member took it upon herself to become the university’s marketing department. She discovered the World Wide Web at 9 a.m. on a sunny Thursday morning. By 2 p.m. she was issuing directives as to the design and features of the university’s web site.
