I'd agree with everything you said except this. Having info spread  
among all these sites is a bug, not a feature, and it's one that  
afflicts the University badly.

(Obviously this doesn't apply to, say, a site for a study that the SPH  
might do on H1N1--that is rightfully segregated--but for info that is  
of general interest we need less fragmentation and duplication of  
effort, not more.)
