This ECAR research bulletin discusses the adjustments that the Indiana University information technology organization made, and continues to make, in order to support membership in Sakai. It has been said that supporting Sakai can seem like trying to change a tire on a moving car. As co-founder of and active participant in the Sakai collaboration, the effects of IUâ€™s decisionâ€”the unexpected, the challenging, and the delightfulâ€”are discussed in terms of the intra- and interuniversity realities of highly collaborative efforts.
