It’s about people, people

I found link to this strip at Hacker News thread. A pure classic.

It's about people, people


In my opinion it clearly represents the buzz created about recent Google AI Challenge 2010 winner Bocsimacko. Google AI Challenge is a competition organized by the University of Waterloo Computer Science Club and sponsored by Google. Competitors try to solve given tasks by writing algorithms in computer language of their choice. Clear winner was a guy from Hungary Gábor Melis.

But the news media was more interested in it’s chosen language for the competition than his skills and mind.
Maybe Google should hire “Lisp language” instead of this talented guy…
