This talk surveys the state of Computer Science as an academic discipline. It reviews some positive and some less positive trends, and attempts to identify and discuss some things that we, as an academic community, could do better. To concretely illustrate our points, we discuss some case studies from some current/recent research projects that the author is involved in.
