    Where are you from ?

    It was revealing what an amazing cross section of ages was into QA, especially software (refering to the ages thread). Is it the same with the countries, or are the folks that we see here on board limited to few geographical locations? Personally I have a feeling that the major contributors are the U.S, Britain and India. However that is based on intuition and not solid data. So what geographical location are you from?

    Re: Where are you from ?

    We have a fair representation from almost every continent I think.

    The US, of course, has the lion's share of major contributors including Jeff, QALady, digits, jeanj, JRica and others.

    Non-US contributors include
    Robert Tehve - Australia
    Peter Nairn - England
    ilia (LR forum) - Israel
    F Mercier - France
    moi & others - India

    Also at various times I've seen Russian, German, Chinese, Swiss & Italian folks on the boards. There might even be folks from S American countries and the middle east - just not as visible as the others.

    Think about it - someone types in a question and some stranger from 10000 miles away answers it!

    QAForums has truly gone global. I know at least 3-4 folks at work who start the day with coffee and QAForums!

    Get email
    Start Coffee (note how that one's got a capital 'C') www.qaforums.com
    More Coffee
    Etc...
