  Echoing Mark's reply, it seems to me that a lot of the volume IS from
people who are in an academic environment and wrestle with the issues
therein. My two cents would be that I think the wide variety of
experience and ideas here only helps when it comes to getting good
pointers or solutions to a problem plaguing one of us in a University
setting.  Are there problems so specific to the higher education realm
that you think they'd benefit from their own forum?

  So if it were a democratic process, I'd vote to keep it here, but if a
new list/site is created, I'll go wherever the information is.  (How
many subscribers are on this list now anyways?  The www.beowulf.org
website says, "Over 3,000 researchers, engineers, students, and software
developers have participated in these online discussions since 1996."
but it doesn't say how many are subscribed now.)
