NSF Claims computers scientists are kids with bicycles
Saturday, July 30, 2005
Computer scientists are no different [than] Kids rac[ing] their bicycles, pedaling madly to move ever faster. Then they advance to sedans, but covet sports cars, still wanting to push that envelope of speed.
OK, so I took a few liberties with the context! I think it makes a better headline.
The rest of the story is worth reading from a historical perspective. I'm not sure why the NFS is talking about it today when it happened in 1996?
