Computer Science, what is it?

A long thread on Computer Science was started by Niall O Broin earlier today. It went through the usual arguments about what constituted CS and what was important. Some argued that low lever languages were a waste of time as most developers won’t ever touch that aspect of programming, but I tend to agree with Kenn Humborg and say that ASM is important, and anyway, it’s fun and logical and more interesting in many ways than high level coding!
