    Why is it odd?

    Last numbers I saw (Apple public presentation at the last NAB) indicated
    more than half a million registered FCP systems deployed.

    Considering that video editing is an overall pretty small niche market -
    I'd say that's a pretty clear sign of how successful it's become.

    In that context, the ads are just "business as usual."

    It would be a clear sign if there were a legitimate TOTAL number of ALL
    editing systems .. without that.. its simply Bill's optimisim. Editing
    is not a small niche market by any stretch.. Considering TV, corporate, Web
    media, movies, Govt, defense.. and Islamic Terrorists.. etc etc.. I would
    say it is a fairily vast market .. movie editing may be niche.. but media
    editing is not..

    Balderdash.

    Take the average football stadium. Fill it with random people.

    How many of them edit for a living?

    That's a niche.

    I guarantee you there's be more plumbers, lawyers, accountants,
    waitresses, teachers, and on and on and on.

    Be interesting to see the IRS SIC code data.

    I wonder if there are more of us than lumberjacks?
    Fine artists?
    Cowboys?

    Probably more than shepherds, tho.

    Cest' la vie!

    US? Bill.. you don't edit for a living..

    Or did you just edit long enough to be convinced you knew it all and began
    yakking at podiums and writing cheezy books. $65? Come on Bill.. What
    credits do you have anyway that would make anything you write worth $65.00
    None.

    I figure you editied for a year.. and then started yakking. It is easy to
    see that you enjoy giving advice. I recall a particularly entertaining post
    where you were giving me IRS advice.. :)) cracked me up.
