your based out of san jose, there might not be any other area like
that in the U.S. as far as connectivity and concentration of i.t.
savy.  there might be 10 cities in the U.S. with the same
infrastructure and availability as you have accessible.  there are not
50.  while not abnormal where you live, it is abnormal to the rest of
the country.

scott's user base is more typical than what you can find in your
neighborhood.  i am sure some of the same users live within 30 miles
of you too but you,i, scott, or anybody else on this list can not be
considered normal in this respect.
