Computer Science Departments will not survive

When asked what would happen if Computer Science departments do not collaborate in the creation of a new Academic field, Web Science, Ben Shneiderman, from the University of Maryland, said: “they will not survive.” At least, his point of view is clear.

One thought on “Computer Science Departments will not survive”

    Well, the guy’s listed in no less than three “who’s who” books, so what do I know? Well, I guess I know that I’m cheaper than him, being unwilling to pay to see my name listed thus.
