What Does a Computer Scientist Do?

"I was recently at a dinner party where someone not in the IT field asked me about my job. My typical response to this question usually ranges from, I write apps for phones to software development or programming. But on this particular occasion, I decided that “Computer Scientist” was the best answer. However, the answer invited more questions: “What does a Computer Scientist do?” Before long, I was rattling off theories on algorithm complexity, multithreading, and database CRUD operations. While this did not make me the life of the party, it certainly gave the small audience a better understanding of what app makers, software developers, and programmers do, beyond writing code. Plus, Computer Scientist just sounds more polished. And most of all, I love working with new technology and having fun while doing it. There’s just not enough time in the day to play with all the new stuff!"
