In new book "I Sing The Body Electronic:  A Year With Microsoft on the
Multimedia Frontier," a senior manager Microsoft explains multimedia
"designers" (writers, artists, etc.) and "developers" (programmers):
"Designers are invariably female, are talkative, live in lofts, have
vegetarian diets and wear found objects in their ears.  Developers are
invariably male, eat fast food and don't talk except to say, 'Not true.'"
(Viking Publ. Co., 1995)
