    @barawww You wouldn't go to a mechanic and ask if they're building an engine from scratch.

    Don't do that to a computer scientist. Lol

    @savethecode @barawww The way you break the ice in that situation by asking "Hey that looks really cool! What are you doing? Can you tell me more?"

    Agreed. It would be more appropriate. But that would be a good time to educate the person on what you do no?

    In 1992 I rooted to the VAX system on a dumb terminal at the library (that was typically only used for the book catalog) so I could check my email. There was nothing to it because nobody cared about security then. The girl I was studying with was super impressed. "Wow! This is like that movie 'Sneakers' that just came out!"

    Not wanting to lose out on that kind of cred with a young lady I might be persuaded to be interested in, I said, "Yessss. Yes it is."

    This sounds like a great moment to quote Gilfoyle in the episode where Jared interviews him.
