It always blows my mind how many CS academics have these god-awful mid-90s era webpages.

It's worse than that. This webpage presents the information in a clear, readable text format with no unnecessary clutter. Why, it's such an old design that it's similar to what Gutenberg was cranking out on his printing press and to what you can buy today on your Kindle. Imagine that!

They're probably too busy doing Computer Science to bother keeping with the late trends in web design.

I absolutely love it. I think it shows you have reached a certain level of academic distinction when you can get away with a css free homepage, preferably hosted unix style at http://dept.yourinstitution.edu/~yourinitials

It's like when people get to a certain level of wealth they stop sending status signals.
