Considering that even undergraduate Computer Science sucks pretty badly in most colleges, I'll tell you what I tell everyone: teach yourself.

He also talks about PhysicsFS, one of his favorite projects. Other topics discussed include his thoughts on Linux distribution systems, America's Army releases, and icculus.org.
