Then clearly you don't have a sound understanding of the industry.... this is a common misconception let me explain. cable in the 80 was primarily a job that was done by basically unskilled untrained labor up until the introduction of Digital Cable and High Speed Data in the 90's. With the addition of product lines that are becoming increasingly complex and an end user who cares more about their Internet then even TV reception computer knowledge and repair experience is fast becoming a make or break skill set in terms of getting one of these jobs. If your strictly defining IT as only computer work then your narrow view of the field tracks however cable has been forced to move closer and closer to the beading edge of technology to keep up with completion.
That being said cable techs are't all college trained computer scientists, but there is a larger number of displaced IT workers run out of their jobs by lower cost over seas completion who fit very nicely into the field. The average pay of a cable tech has grown also to reflect this as well with most repair techs in the filed making wages that compete for modest entry level to mid grade IT Jobs. Additionally cable company's have had to expand training budgets to train existing employees on new products / services which translates into higher skilled more educated technicians.
All this being considered its hard to see how somebody would not clump cable work (or telico work in general) with IT. It might be more accurate to say; "I woudn't say the Cable Guy is ONLY in the IT business ".
one of the great things about netflix is the fullness of selection, unfortunately netflix is now discovering what being a content provider is all about getting screwed by the content owners
I can tell you from first hand experience, with working with one of these heretic types, for the most part it's the conflict that drives them. Once this is the point nothing will be good enough. Simple adherence to a plan is not poor team work, at times it might blind you to opportunities not taken but it will not hinder production which is by in large more important for a company to stay in business than innovation.
you made a funny!
