Comment Computer science used to be physics (Score 1) 508

When I started my major in Computer Science at Brandeis University in 1980, the computer science department was actually part of the physics department. There was a huge debate about whether Computer Science should even be its own major at a liberal arts college, thinking that computer science was like auto repair and belonged at a vocational school (not to disparage auto repair - I can't begin to comprehend that art). Really they were just jealous that we all had the highest starting salaries coming out of college. I think physics has always had this disdain for computer science, thinking it's too low brow or something.
