Dev Chair : Do we want scientists or engineers?

Good computer science graduates do not make good software developers. Really, I mean it. But for the polar opposite reason that these two New York University computer science professors think. When I was in high school my physics teacher once told us, "All physics experiments work. They just may not work the way you want them to."

Well, it looks like it has been released. The new service from Google is a hosting environment called Project Hosting, that allows developers to upload and store any open-source project code they have in their arsenal....
