"Computer Science" as a field of study goes way back
as well, but that doesn't mean there was a computer
industry that very many people could say they were
employed in.

Outside the inner circle of people actually working in
the "information technology industry," "IT" means the
guys who keep networks and computers running and
computers are an industry. You'll change that
perception about the same time that others here
manage to get the average person on the street to
recognize that a "technical communicator" is not the
device that Captain Kirk used to call Tech Support.
