demographics xml
The demographics of XML conferences tend to be people with an SGML background which by definition skews them to be older than the average .NET or Java developer. I wouldn't consider this to be the indicative of the demographics of people using XML in their daily lives as developers. 
That would be like extrapolating the demographics of the users of Unicode from the demographics of the various conferences on the subject. 
There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

Subject:  Why are XML crowds older?

When marketing and sales people come to XML shows, they often ask why
it's an older crowd than what you see at, say, a Java show or a
Microsoft show.

Thinking of the people in the XML community whom I respect most, they
seem to be on the older side too.

Any thoughts on the demographics of XML, and how it differs from the
demographics of Java or .NET?
