Nowadays, most of science(or may be all) depends on IT. I think it is our time to know those who depends on us, this will help us in development, problem solving and automation.
Look for example if an IT expert also know about Astronomy, including its history, where it is now and what is expected[ http://www.earthview...ges/history.htm ]. We need to know how ancient astronomer(like Galileo) worked and how IT changed things now we have Hubble Space Telescope[ http://www.articleci...ticle_760.shtml ] and other modern tools which depends on networking and programmed software to work.
Also this will remind us about Pascal`s job while now with programmed scientific calculators you can do it in a single click!
This my view that we also need to know about other branches of science as well, so what you have about this?
SORRY: I have to put links as they are since I lost the editor functionality for two days now, no any tool is loaded even in full editor.
