Computer Science Gets No Respect: A Talk with Son 1.0

From my son whose nearly 6 years old.

Son: Dad, when I get bigger I want to be a scientist.

Me: You know I'm a computer scientist.

S: No, I want to be a real scientist!

M: You don't think I'm a real scientist?

S: Yes, but I want to make a shrink ray. That's going to need a lot of
thinking because I have to create the formula. Then I can make people
small, or make them into giants.

M: It sure will!
