I am not a computer scientist. Or to be accurate, I am a computer scientist by adoption. I adopted the discipline, having as a background systems engineering, and the discipline adopted me. Of course, the result is that shamefully, I miss large parts of the proper formation of a computer scientist and have had to acquire the requisite knowledge, at least sufficient to 'pass' as a computer scientist, subsequently. Perhaps however, this has given me a more sensitive appreciation of the elegance of computer science and of its 'ninja arts'. Here are my selected five, which exemplify the intellectual and technical tools that computer scientists are able to bring to bear on complex problems.
Sorry, there's nothing in this article about nunchucks and throwing stars.
