	I for one, take offense at that. I have personally contributed
to support the TIG and when I have sold equipment through the TIG
mailing list or web page I think a seperate contribution is in order
and have done so.  Considering the value received for the TIG I think
it's a bargain.

I've never noticed a lack of diversity in the TIG <vbg>!

Jeff, I'm another of those "Sixties children" but I'm also quite happy
to be able to choose a forum with a good signal to noise ratio. When
I'm in the mood for anarchy I'll hit the Usenet groups - there's room and a
purpose for each.  BTW, I think that Rob's managed to take the
positive aspect of SMPTE (minimizing the PR) and appropriately apply
it to the TIG. (Disclaimer - I'm Secretary/Treasurer of the NY Section
SMPTE - but it doesn't make me a bad person <g>
