Response to: pairing CS with other programs is a great idea

I don't think I agree that using a computer is inherently anti-social, but it certainly can be.

I think that the social aspects of learning about computer science, choosing a discipline and then getting a job are the issue -- not the tool itself (to echo Shelley's point :).

Early exposure certainly is a huge factor, and today's other author has started organizations that are trying to address that. And there's certainly room for more help! I hope that your enthusiasm for this thread inspires you to volunteer and encourage young women to explore our field.
