Social Computering vs. Computer Science
I think this change is already reflected on many campuses. Frequently there is a Computer Science department usually containing many people interested in the theorem and proof side of algorithms. On the same campus there is often another deparment called Computer Information Systems or Management Information Systems containing people deeply committed to teaching work skills for the IT sector. Even at schools that don't make the distinction by maintaining separate departments, there are often two programs of study.
I light of these distinctions, you can simply ask someone what they studied (or if they studied) and learn a lot about how precise they intend to be about which things.
