Kentucky: Programming Language = Foreign Language

Spaham language and culture (426 comments)

It's interesting to see how few people say that foreign languages come with foreign cultures.
American people (as a whole) are known for their lack of knowledge about the rest of the world.
Just because we use the term 'language' in "computer language" doesn't mean it's a real language.
Allowing people to learn a CS language instead of a real human language removes the little chance some people have to actually learn about other cultures.
(As I said above, I'm speaking about the US as a whole, of course a lot of people have more knowledge than that, but I'm sure you can easilly quote a few politicians, even presidents who couldn't tell their ass from their feet even geographically wise)

Kentucky: Programming Language = Foreign Language

Spaham Re:An international embarrassment (426 comments)

If only there could be something that would link the whole world together...
Maybe we could invent some king of wires, and maybe err computers, and we could make them talk to each other
and then maybe we could actually be as close to anyone on the planet as we're to our neighbours ?
