    Nice to see our profession made the list but I've gotta say -- with the median salary listed as $86,320 (and considering how long I've been in the field), I am either in the wrong job or the wrong country, I'm afraid.
    How do I know you are who you think you are?

    Well that salary is in CAD, not USD. But, it is nice to be in a (socialist?) country that obviously values organized development. Just a quick trip to CAN's Calgary and the adjacent US's communities will illuminate the difference in thought between our countries.
