Why university websites suck

Ever wondered why so many university websites are totally useless? Well this explains it neatly in one Venn diagram.

You’d have thought that universities would have figured out the Web by now. The reason they haven’t, of course, is that their official sites are usually the responsibility of the development (aka fundraising) or PR departments, and these people are exclusively focussed on the messages they wish to project, rather than thinking about what users and visitors might actually want.
