I was also hoping this group would be quite useful...
Though I should add,like yourself, I find it is interesting & helpful.

It does seem to be mainly employed people, or is that just a perception?

If not, is that just the nature of the business?

It certainly seems to be 'in house', with technical illustration. I know
there are other freelancers out there, but _most_ appear to contract for a
single company which is hardly 'freelance' in it's purest form.

If you hit upon a useful list/group or otherwise of technically orientated
contractors/consultants/etc. I'd be pleased to know.
