Hi All,

This story makes for a seed to an interesting discussion here, perhaps.

> o Cheating: Should we Trust the Code? (Tartan)
> Ish Harshawat writes in Carnegie Mellon University's The Tartan newspaper
> about the growing national problem of students cheating in computer science
> courses by copying programming code from others.  A recent check by a
> CMU professor found several of his students had duplicated code in work
> they had turned in.  Harshawat's article discusses the scope of the problem
> at CMU, and what can and is being done both at CMU and nationally.

Reactions welcomed.
