CS Table 5/9: Comics!

The end of the semester is busy, so we are taking a fun detour from our usual readings. For the final CS Table of the year, we will look at comics about technical topics, political issues, and the downfall of society. If you have any comics you would like to include, send them to Professor Osera or Curtsinger. (If you don't send some, they will resort to showing Marmaduke and Dinosaur comics!)

Computer science table (CS Table) is a weekly meeting of Grinnell College community members (students, faculty, staff, etc.) interested in discussing topics related to computing and computer science. CS Table meets Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00pm in JRC 224B. Contact the CS faculty for the weekly reading. Students on meal plans, faculty, and staff are expected to cover the cost of their meals. Visitors to the College and students not on meal plans can charge their meals to the department.

CS Table on 12/8: Comics

CHANGES: BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH. MEET IN NOYCE-3821.

Instead of discussing deep technical topics, political issues, and the downfall of society, we’ll be reading (and discussing) comics about technical topics, political issues, and the downfall of society. There is no “assigned” reading this week, but please bring or email Prof. Curtsinger a link to a web comic. A good starting point for your comics search is XKCD (www.xkcd.com), but other comics are welcome.

Discussion starts at noon on Tuesday, December 8, 2015.
