We've had this discussion umpteen times before, about how CS and 
Software Engineering are different, why one would go to a university for 
a CS education instead of a trade school, etc. etc.

Levi found this article and I think it does a great job of explaining 
what CS is and why it's beautiful. It also does an ok job of saying why 
you would want to get a CS degree.

Now I'll bow out and let you kids discuss. I've got an academic paper to 
write. :)

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
