Revenge of the Nerds?

A tipster wrote in to alert Bwog to an apparent SEAS conspiracy brewing at Google Labs. The image of Columbia’s campus on Google Maps is overlaid by “Columbia Univ – School of Engineering” while “Columbia University” is confined to 120th & Broadway, somewhere in the neighborhood of Pupin.
We knew SEAS had been stepping into the spotlight under Dean Galil, but we didn’t know he had launched some sort of coup against the powers-that-be in Low before shipping out to Tel Aviv. Our informant concludes otherwise: “Looks like the old question about the engineering school as the ‘back door’ into the university has finally been settled — by Google.”
