Degrees in life sciences; formerly head of bioinformatics at a global pharmaceuticals firm; also ran a genomics laboratory. I've had a consulting business for the last few years, with practices in data analysis and more generalized management consulting. I'm on the board of a few non-profit and for-profit organizations, too. I really enjoy coaching startups with business plans and business development.

Well, up until last Monday, been sitting on my unemployed thumb for 16 months. As of now I am part of a work group for the re-fueling shutdown at a local nuke plant. 28 days from now I'll probably be sitting on that thumb again until Peach Bottom goes down in September and Three Mile Island in October. I've done re-fueling shutdowns since 96, apart from that I have been employed as a union carpenter for the last 18 years until the economy ended up in the crapper. Before that I worked for Rexroth Hydraulics as an electronics tech/service tech.

Former research biochemist that became a state government bureaucrat after taking what was to be a temporary low-level tech job. Now dedicated to changing the small part of a taxpayer-funded clusterf*ck under my control into proof that government can exhibit the positive qualities of private enterprise rather than the qualities of a Three Stooges episode.

After 30 years wasted as Senior System Administrator [for a rather well-known international organization], I finally discovered that there is more to life than IT. And I'm happy now.

May I ask what made you unhappy? Did you not like being a Sys Admin?

Quite to the contrary. But, looking back over 30 years, I figure I got sucked in too much. I certainly enjoyed my job for all these years, without doubt. In fact, I always used to stress that I'd not want to exchange my position with any other in the organisation - not even with the big boss himself although, of course, he earned a bit more money [for the record, of late my monthly salary was a slim €9000.- after tax]. As Sr. SysAdmin, though, I actually considered myself as the most powerful person around - *everyone* sooner or later depended on me [surely all other sysadmins on here can confirm this], and I was *always* available. And so, I most certainly neglected much of my personal live etc. in favour of my job. But that's history now. I'm free finally ... and happy :-(

I'm a software developer for an RDBMS development company since two and a half year. A bit surprised, I'm working mostly with Android now which has it's ups and downs. Before that I was a SysAdmin for a small bioinformatics cluster (well, it grew to some hundred nodes at its peak) and wrote Perl to interface with an ancient Fortran program.

The combo of being a sysadmin and developer sucked a bit. And the combo of Perl and Fortran was ... interesting.
