    Re: Willard McCarty's question about Comp. Sci. and the humanities

    Do not forget special effects. Making magic via games and the movies
    is definitely every comp. sci. student's dream job. Although as a
    quest for meaning I am personally finding such things less and less

    Just as a stray thought, from someone firmly straddling both camps
    (witness my "fiction author" and "irregular faculty" personas below)
    -- "what's the desirable". That is, what's the artistic equivalent of
    the "deliverable". End products may be the by products.
