    Default Technology oriented?

    I love the outdoors - have a cabin in Maine - love to hike - take pictures of what I see. I appreciate nature and all around me. Many folks who live near us in Maine and folks we waterski with in the morning are in technology related jobs. CIO of a major company living next to the CIO of another company. Fellow who sold his software development company. Network administration people. Data warehouse and business intelligence consultants. Application development managers.

    A lot of folks who like coming to Maine and NH to appreciate the outdoors are in technology (high pressure) jobs from what I see. What about you? Are you in the technology field?

    I am. I am a manager of application developers at a financial services company. What about you?

    Now that is cool. What is interesting is we do have several folks who are technology oriented. Not many here without a technology bent from what has been posted so far.

    I wouldn't make that conclusion. You did ask about IT specifically. You tend to find what you are looking for, and not what you're not. Ask about another profession, or post a poll.

    Of course, people on any forum are likely to be tech-skewed. It's like asking people at the library if they like to read.

    I looked for a way of doing a poll but did not find one. I participate on forums on other topics (photography, log homes, etc) and do not find that forum participants in general are tech-skewed. This forum does attract the tech-savvy folks - which I find different - which is why I posted my question.
