  • We are suffering from the challenges of abundance provided by the Web 2.0 services We are seeing significant changes in how our community is working cf statistics in usage of JISCMail lists
  • in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise philosophy at Middlesex was ranked a very impressive 14th out of all philosophy submissions...The university, it seems, has made its decision on the grounds that the department is not financially viable. Accordingly, the university has decided to concentrate its resources in areas where a better return is available.&amp;quot;
