Re: <nettime> computer critic Joseph Weizenbaum died, age 85


I slightly knew Weizenbaum in the 1980's. He was fond of saying that  
anything that calls itself "(something) science" as in "computer  
science" isn't really a science. When he retired and moved back to  
Berlin he aparently refused to speak English in public any more.

Best,
Michael
