    I'm 40, I have a Master of Music degree, I've just started my PhD, still tying the subject down, but it'll be to do with technology being counter-creative.

    I lecture in audio technology at a London Uni.

    I also teach Aikido, and hold a 1st dan black belt, plus a very old second dan in karate.

    I guess those are qualifications.

    Been here since mid 02 I think, didn't lurk at all, just jumped in. Been a Demi for 2 years.

    I'm 45 (probably the oldest active member...ugggh)

    I'm currently working as a Photographer, though I specialise in Software Development and Graphic Design.

    I have a 2 year degree in Computer Programming but I'm working on a 2 year degree in Graphic Design and a 4 year degree in Computer Science. I've probably spent more time studying while not attending school since real life technology pushes harder than any instructor or curriculum.

    I've been active on MacRumors for just under 3 years.

    Nope, got you beat ... I'm 47. I repackage software for distribution via Group Policy for a living. Stuck on a miserable Windows platform, but at least I get to read MacRumors when the server's not too busy! :rolleyes: Anyway, I've got a Bachelors of Technology in ElectroMechanical Computer Technology, and have been in MacRumors only 8 months, although it seems much longer than that!

    Regards,
    Marc
