    I'm curious about the demographics in Clydes/Athenas

    For example, occupational types. I'm putting up a poll momentarily to satisfy that itch...

    EDIT:
    Put Artistic in Video Production as I had intended that category to be Video/Arts Production and was distracted. Whoops!

    I don't do much video any more. I did a documentary a few years ago that made me take a break, although I still have one sitting in editing.

    I'm in advertising. Designer, Art Director, Retoucher, etc.

    I'm attending college full time, and working part time at a Warehouse. So I voted physical labor considering I load and unload 18 wheelers twice a week, and stock crap. Thanks to this job I haven't had any "recreational" cycling time since I commute on my bike.


    Luckily, this won't be my lively hood.

    My dad has had a desk job(petrophysicist) for 22 yrs now and he pasted the 300lb mark recently. He may join in on BF eventually.

    I voted for physical labor. There wasn't a category for skilled labor. Been a Tool&Die Maker for 30 years. This is a dying trade in this country. I have built tooling for appliance companies that sent it straight to Mexico for production. Most of if not all tooling for the auto makers is being built overseas, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China, even Canada. I may be looking at a career change in the future. Sorry for the rant!!

    Coulda used a category for "Publishing/Media" there Tom -- there are a gazillion jobs in that area.
    I had to settle for Business Management.

    I work in insurance. I handle entertainment intellectual property liability claims -you know like if someone is suing a movie studio for copyright infringement. Also handle entertainment "personal injury" for instance the lawsuit by Tracie Rice against Lindsay Lohan (If it is on TMZ.com I usually have it). I also handle general IP claims as well (trademark, copyright, trade secrets etc) as technology errors & omissions (like if a software engineer agrees to provide software but fails to deliver the product in a timely fashion).

    SO? What catagory is that?

    Call it legal/lawyer, as it's at least so close to that or paralegal as to make no difference

    Umm...no. Sorry, not to combative but teaching does not follow the "scientific" method in all (or even in most) cases.

    Agreed, I should have thought out the categories a bit better Teaching IS really a science AND an art
