Weird Linkages

Came across a forum thread at Ubisoft, where different flightsimmers reveal some of their musical experience. Wow! And I thought I was a bit unusual with my mixed interests in gaming and gigging!

There's a couple interesting observations to make. Firstly, the odd appropriateness of posting up a link to my band blog on a flightsim site just goes to illustrate how the internet connects and people expand those connections. Secondly, how long some of these guys have been playing [music] for - since the pre-transistor age in the extreme! The flightsim mob (and 'serious gamers' in general) seem to tend to be older than the general pools of populations in espace. Is that some form of elitism?

For the record - I love the music of J S Bach!
