Here’s where I channel Brian Leiter:
Distinguished logician and computer scientist Georg Gottlob, former chair of the Department of Information Systems at the University of Technology, Vienna, moves to Oxford University. This is a great loss for the TU Wien and the Viennese logic community. It is to be hoped that Gottlob will continue to be affiliated with the TU in some form or another.
(Georg was one of my teachers as an undergraduate — why don’t I hear about this sooner, I ask? Hello? Is noone in Vienna reading my blog?)
