The Australian Computer Society should be stripped of their ability to accredit University courses and disbanded. I just walked out of a forum on how we can improve technology education in Australia and wasn't sure if it was a real forum or some sort of parody of such a forum. In the ACS's latest brochure which was distributed on every seat to promote technology to school kids it said pursue "Electrical & Electronic Engineering: install, repair and service technology equipment", "Software Engineering: design and document software structures and operations" and "Network & Communications: provide technical support to help people use software and hardware". Sorry, but who are these f*cking morons? They are doing more damage to the industry than help. I kept thinking that at some point Candid Camera might jump out from behind the door.
This is the "professional association for Australia’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector". What a joke.
