In 1959 C.P. Snow's famous lecture, "The Two Cultures", decried the failure of educated people in the sciences and humanities to work together. Today we have a similar divide opening between those who write software for science and those who write it for "everything else". In this talk, we'll review the current state of affairs and look at what Julia might do to remedy the situation. The hope is that Julia can be a great programming language not just for science, but for programmers everywhere.
