So high, so low, so many things to know

Still job hunting.
Realized that Scala and Clojure are functional languages at least some people pay people to use, I should go learn them! (I have a functional bias.)

As my algorithms studies continue, it's scary to look back and realize how much CS is out there that I didn't even know I didn't know, back when I was working. Both the stuff I learned in grad school (computer theory, OS concepts, graphics, programming language implementation) and the stuff I've learned since (graph algorithms, non-trivial dynamic programming, quickselect, heaps/priority queues, AVL trees...) What did I actually get hired on? Structured programming, lists, trees, recursion, Big-O analysis, hashes (thanks to Perl on a previous job, not any class I took.) Well, you really can do a lot with that. But man.

javascript is also a high-demand functional language, though that functionality is not always emphasized. More than with C or C++, though.
