It is kind of a shame. I worked at DEC for 18 years and I knew quite a few genius-level CS guys in the research and AD group where I worked.

But I think the wannabees followed them in. I finished my BS at Fitchburg State College where there are a dozen undergrads and 100 grad students in the CS dept, and almost all of the grad students were Indian. I went to a programming contest there, showed up 40 minutes late for a 2 hour contest, was the only one there writing in Java (because I was intent on learning it at the time) and took 5th place out of a field of 80.

One good suit is worth a thousand resumes.
