About 8-9 years. Do I qualify? ;-)

Over time, yes. Single-sourcing exploded, and CMS is now da bomb. ;-)

> 3. Have you noticed a change in salary? Explain briefly.

As TW said, there was a huge growth period in the late 1990s and it's
plateaued since.

Yep. I work on software, and we're working in the code now to document
APIs and SDKs, as well as doing traditional developer guides and GUI
user guides.

Since I started? 5 new jobs, 2 relocations (from one place to another
and then back again).
