I think it's also the case that in a profession you apply knowledge you got from a book (basically). In a job, being ditch-digging or being President of the United States, you apply whatever you already have to doing what needs to be done. -- John Cowan firstname.lastname@example.org http://ccil.org/~cowan If he has seen farther than others, it is because he is standing on a stack of dwarves. --Mike Champion, describing Tim Berners-Lee (adapted)
