"As we honor the more mathematical, abstract, and `scientific' parts of our subject more, and the practical parts less, we misdirect the young and brilliant minds away from a body of challenging and important problems that are our peculiar domain, depriving these problems of the powerful attacks they deserve."

—Fredrick P. Brooks, Jr.
Computer Scientist as Toolsmith II2
