Didn't expect that

I've been playing with my interests list, copying stuff from friends, that sort of thing.

Along the way I decided to add some professional interests relevant to being a Business Analyst in.

Evidently I'm the only person on LJ interested in "unified modelling language" or "business process modelling".  (UML gets considerable hits)

A significant chunk of the few people interested in "use cases" are Russian (judging by the cyrillic text). Ditto for "business analysis" (one of the two communities that produces is Russian). 

I would have expected professional interests, particularly from the fringes of IT, to feature fairly heavily in the english-speaking audience. 

I'm kind of wondering why they don't.

They come here to ...forget. :-)

Thats quite possible. Makes me quite the sick puppy then doesn't it. :)

Hello New Friendling :)

I am pondering that there is somewhere else where they are hiding - Leece's comment notwithstanding.

What if they are 'blogging' instead - or all playing in a special place you don't know about yet... Maybe we should stalk them ... :)

This comment took a nasty turn at the end there, huh??

And hello back at you. :)

I suppose the serious tech heads are probably hanging out in Usenet, Comp.object being a logical candidate.

But thats not me which is why I referred to the fringes of IT. BAs stand between the darkness and the light.

Its largely a matter of opinion which side the developers fall on, and which side the customers fall on. :)

the developers at my work are a scarey breed... (but Oh So Cute Geeky Type Boys)

They habitate the top floor and speak in language I understand a little more than most, but still struggle with

they come in at irregular hours and need coffee before you can talk to them

they do beautiful work, which transends time :P

their product (our tools we use to monitor, track, predict performance etc) are second to none and are often world-firsts

they drive me mad and we couldn't live without them :)

Sounds like a cool bunch who are enjoying what they do. Always a bonus. :)
