I was looking over the newsletter this morning and caught this posting: New Generation does not realy understand computers[^]

Which has left me wondering what exactly the basics are. I understand the concepts behind computers from the basic circuits and bit math, up though general language concepts and framework use almost entirely from my education. I can take a given concept and implement it in at least four languages off the top of my head, not counting C# and VB.net as separate. But I will admit file parsing was passed right over in my program(Software Engineering rather than Computer Science).

So what exactly are the basics of computer science? I figure having a clue here may help those of us who are that generation avoid things like this in the future.
