Yesterday I went to get a soda and passed by a group of young women, one of color, sitting around chatting. Having never seen them before I figured they were from a nearby (non-science) department, but then I started hearing snippets of their conversation -
"-- and I can't believe he's teaching it in Java."
"I know, what a ridiculous language to use for this material."
That's my kind of talk!
(Well, actually, I love Java, but you know what I mean).
