Comment: language and culture (Score 1) 426

by Spaham (#46070943) Attached to: Kentucky: Programming Language = Foreign Language

It's interesting to see how few people say that foreign languages come with foreign cultures.
American people (as a whole) are known for their lack of knowledge about the rest of the world.
Just because we use the term 'language' in "computer language" doesn't mean it's a real language.
Allowing people to learn a CS language instead of a real human language removes the little chance some people have to actually learn about other cultures.
(As I said above, I'm speaking about the US as a whole, of course a lot of people have more knowledge than that, but I'm sure you can easilly quote a few politicians, even presidents who couldn't tell their ass from their feet even geographically wise)

If at first you don't succeed, you must be a programmer.
