that's because Neil grew up right, meaning right next door to where I  
grew up, in Roslyn Long Island.

I think what can happen in service occupations, is that when  
consolidation occurs- as in corporate culture taking precedence over  
creative environment- individual effort can suffer, from lack of  
recognition and lack of innovation.   We've seen something of this at  
times with post-production.   I've been waiting for the cycle to swing  
back toward boutique-based houses and we might be entering that phase  

We could also make comparisons between certain kinds of corporate  
monopolistic software and the freer type that has less hierarchy, but  
it can get political quickly, etc.
