Link: Confessions of an Engineering Washout

This article (Found on /.) is an interesting comment on a problem I've observed in CS, as well. Basically, although I'll concede that my sympathy is... limited (is _anyone_ surprised by that?) on the subject, this author makes a good point. The people who make it into the teaching positions in the hard sciences are often not sociable people. I can think of one professor I had last year that acted as though he saw every conversational request for help as a prelude to me trying to make off with his lunch money. And he's not the worst in the school.

Fixes? Who knows... Maybe more teachers like [Moebius Stripper]( are needed, or maybe somebody needs to look at these professors' skills and, if they cannot teach, _teach them to_.
