Fun fact: In danish, we don't call it computer science, we call it datalogy*, just like biology or geology. We don't do just do science with computers, we study data.

(*the danish word is "datalogi")

Why? Because the dane Peter Naur (co-creator of BNF and involved in creating ALGOL 60) said so and founded Department of Datalogy at Copenhagen University in 1969 as the first academic institution in Denmark focusing on computers.

@zatnosk FWIW, in German it's "Informatik", so, "study of information", I guess.

@zatnosk Oh, interesting! The Datalogisk Institut is the building right next to where I usually have my lectures.
