*** Sweeping generalisations alert ***
(Disclaimer: I know what I say below is not true of all people and there are many exceptions, but I believe that what I say here is the -general- truth)
You can generally split the people on this site into 2 groups of people, Europeans and North Americans. There are some others (including myself now with where I live) who don't fit into this bracket, but most are in one of the 2 groups.
One thing that I've noticed is that North Americans appear very technically knowledgable. If there is a discussion about electronics, phone lines or perhaps the real high-detail information about Atari chips, the North Americans will dominate.
When it comes to software, the Europeans (especially Eastern Europeans and the UK/Germany) will dominate.
This is intended as a friendly discussion (please keep it this way), but if you feel the same way as I do, how do you think that this has come about?
I have my own theories, but I'd like to hear your thoughts.
