Tine De Moor (PhD; Ghent, Antwerp, and London) is currently associate professor at the department for social and economic history of Utrecht University. Through an interdisciplinary approach for the study of the long-term evolution of rural commons, De Moor has been able to revise the historical basis of the widely debated metaphor of the Tragedy of the Commons, as launched in 1968 by G.

Posted by venessa miemis on Thursday, July 1, 2010 · 21 Comments I’m in the middle of taking a course on Virtual Learning Environments (syllabus here ), and reading a few chapters from Adaptive Software Development by Highsmith.

Collaboration is an act of shared creation or discovery.
