Site Claims to Reveal 'Tattle-tales'

linvir Infinite loop (565 comments)

Report them to themselves for ratting out rats. When they add that to their database, they'll be guilty of ratting themselves out for ratting out rats, which means they need to add another entry to their database...

Just don't tell them I sent you.

Henry writes "In September I start on a CS-type degree course. I am probably a fairly typical newbie programmer, in that most of my knowledge centers around scripting and high to very high level programming. Apart from the obvious — write lots of code — what can I do in the coming months to maximize what I get out of this? There's much to choose from: languages, concepts, mathematics and so on. From previous stories I know that many Slashdotters have strong opinions on the failings and weaknesses of university courses and students, so please feel free to let it all out."

Jimmy (970218) writes "I've successfully applied for a CS-type degree starting this year. I'm pretty excited about it, and I know I'll enjoy the course. However, I have this big looming doubt about the IT industry. Some sources say that demand for graduates is outstripping supply, while others claim that both demand and supply have dropped. What's the true story? Should I turn down my offers and go build a career in auto repair? I really want to do this for a living, but is the money in it any more?"

henry writes "Raph Koster, the lead designer from Ultima Online, recently posed a couple of interesting questions on his website: "should we be thinking about whether our games are teaching people the wrong thing here? Can we even make a successful MMO that doesn't lie to people and tell them they are all special?". This seems to have been inspired by the recent study that found that students are more narcissistic than they used to be. There are actually a few MMOs out there that don't treat the player as a hero or special, but to my knowledge all of the really successful ones do."
