I was just doing something that required me to look up the contact information (email, phone, and ground mail address) of several fairly well-known philosophers, all of whom are at fairly well-known universities. I was shocked to find that for many of these people, their departmental webpages completely suck. I'm not talking website aesthetics here, by the way. I mean that the pages either do not list the faculty member's complete contact information at all, or they do list it but have it located across multiple pages so that, for example, one has to go to one page for an email address and another for a ground mail address. What the hell?
