Americans Are Scarce in Top Programming Contest

Read this on Slashdot: http://developers.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/05/10/0418218&from=rss

Which pointed to this WSJ online article: article here

Which makes me comment that if the WSJ has to write crap like this then it certainly won’t make me an enlightened reader. Is this news? I guess so. Does it make a point somewhere? Maybe…

I certainly do not think any “people” are smarter than another but it does make me ask the question, “where are all of our (American) college CS students?”. I understand professionals not getting in on things like this but why wouldn’t American college students enter? I know if I was in college I would enter things like this considering the impact it could have on a resume.
