[SIGCIS-Members] opportunity to reach a wide audience

Another example from my locale: Seattle Public Schools changed their
student allocation software, and for reasons that remain unexplained (and
probably deliberately well-obfuscated) the roll-out left students attending
high school on the first day with no class schedule.  Those (including my
daughter) were the lucky ones: some did not know to which school they had
been allocated/accepted.
Great question, Jonathan.  :-)  Cheers -- Ian
