Steven E-Z recommended the following video in which Richard Feynman
makes the point that computer science is not a science:    (01)

It only takes 1 min 25 sec, and it's worth watching.    (03)

Feynman was not suggesting that science is more respectable than
engineering, but that their goals are very different.    (04)

Feynman was good at both science and engineering.  In fact, he was good
at some very practical tasks, such as lock picking.  Following is an
amusing chapter about lock picking in the book "Surely your joking,
Mr. Feynman":  http://www.cs.virginia.edu/cs588/safecracker.pdf    (05)

That chapter is more than amusing -- it's required reading for anyone
who thinks that adding more locks will make something more secure.    (06)
