Opinions About typecasting..
Hi Bryan,

> 'XML' programmer or specialist?

I believe that you have to turn up for work, sign some forms and then 
wait till payday.

Only then can you get paid for it. :-) there's more to it than what you 
write on your resume.

But I do know of one guy that charged $250,000 p/a as a 
'interoperability consultantant'. He didn't actually do any programming 
or implementation. Just looked at (message) exchanges at a stock-broking 

Like Rick suggested, he didn't actually "accomplish" anything in the 
sense that us old farts think of. He just stayed, got payed and then 
moved on.

Personally, I'm not that comfortable with that approach but others are.

It was said that he was able to develop quite a comprehensive collection 
of music on his iPod by the time of leaving. So I'm not prepared to say 
that he did nothing at all.
