Why computer students must also be renaissance geeks by Steve Lohr, is an article in the NYT and IHT commenting on an emerging trend in computer science;
On university campuses, the newest technologists have to become renaissance geeks. They have to understand computing, but they also typically need deep knowledge of some other field, from biology to business, Wall Street to Hollywood. And they tend to focus less on the tools of technology than on how technology is used in the search for scientific breakthroughs, the development of new products and services, or the way work is done.
"There isn't the buzz and excitement about computer science that there should be," [Bill] Gates said. "We're on the threshold of extraordinary advances in computing that will affect not only the sciences but also how we work and our culture. We need to get the brightest people working on those opportunities."
