As computers become more powerful, and tools evolve that allow us to build larger and more complex software systems on them, the artificial barriers that keep us from modeling the real world will fall. Finding the ways to do this best, and to build the systems that will be used for this is, I feel, what computer science is really about. And the company that knows this first and does the right things about it has prospects that are very bright indeed.
