Comment: Groups! (Score 1) 227

I understand the premise of this entirely, and I agree. It doesn't have to be that way, though. I maintain several FB Groups, which help me segment those social circles, allowing me to freely post things among a smaller subset without worry of offending someone else or sharing too much with someone who doesn't need to see everything I want to share. Facebook Groups are fantastic. That is all.

There are plenty of people out there who thought CS was easy. It's because they didn't complete a real CS program. Devry, ITT, (insert your tech program here) are great for churning out people with knowledge of the latest and greatest technologies, but they aren't so great about teaching the theory and background knowledge that you're getting. Unfortunately, many people don't know the difference. Very good point. Once you write low level operating system or networking code, or start messing with automata and algorithms.. then you have to be kidding if you say a CS degree is a joke. Every single student in my school's program has spent countless hours and likely many all nighters getting these assignments done.
