Where are you based?



  • This morning something made me think: if I ask something here, will be the others sleeping in this moment halfway around the world.

    I'm in Europe. You? :)

    ( if you check 'some other place' ... please specify ;) )
    ( poll answers are alphabetically ordered to avoid conflicts :) )

    EDIT:
    I feel stupid ... sorry to all of you from Australia. (The poll can't be edited.)



  • My guess is, that Europe will take a huge lead in this poll, though Asia will be the answer for all the people from India here and I also expect some South America.



  • Afaik, we also have some people from USA.
    And you've forgotten Australia :-)



  • I'm sure there will be some from each continent, I was just voicing my expectations. Note: USA is not a continent, even if (some of) its inhabitants like to think differently ;-)



  • I know that USA is no continent, but also South America is no continent, it's only part of one :-)
    But I think, some where from there, like Bradley, and they are part of North America.



  • I guess it depends on your "definition":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continent of "continent". If you are not going to recognize North and South America as separate continents, then I guess you should also talk about Eurasia instead of Europe and Asia. I tend to stick to to the seven continents division: Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, North America, South America and Antarctica.

    But yes, I acknowledge that there are members from all over the world. It is just that I have the impression that the majority of the members are from Europe. But... I am willing to be surprised, of course!



  • To make it more complicated I'm living in South America and Europe at the same time ;-)
    Living in French Guiana between Brasil and Suriname and part of Europe :-)

    Being part of a country that has (its major) part in one continent, does not make you live on that continent, IMHO. Otherwise, you'd also be living in Africa and, I think, Asia. And I would be in one of the two America's too. That is nonsense, of course. There are many countries spread over multiple continents, either by having overseas territories or by just being on the edge of a continent.



  • The people of Europe are more developer than any other region.(In numbers present here in this devnet.)

    Thanks for the precious lesson, but I was just joking as you where discussing the definition of a continent with Gerolf ;-)



  • Even the small number of people participating I haven't expected such results. At least I don't feel alone here in Europe ( sorry South American person :P ).


  • Moderators

    Not only am I the only North American here so far, I'm about as much in the center of the US (and North American continent, fwiw) as you can get! But, fortunately, it's not that lonely when we're all virtually here together!

    I love how our community is close, even though the world is large.



  • Where are people from Russia supposed to vote?



  • I was wandering for Russia too making the poll :D You are welcome in Europe.

    /offtopic @florent.revelut Why I see you as a Lab Rat ... this feels like a bug to me, but maybe you know better (after all you are entomologist) :)



  • I think it depends, where in russia you are?
    Afaik there is a european part and an asian part, right?



  • Yes, that's right. Take half of Europe and half of Asia and you got Russia :D



  • äh, hm, not really....
    I think there is more than half of europe that is not russia... If I am right
    I should contact my globus.... :D



  • Yeah...actually 40% of Europe and around 30% of Asia. But roughly 80% of the entire Russian population lives in the European part. Thank you wikipedia.

    Not that it applies to me, I'm from Switzerland.

    Yup, seems like a bug, not that I care that much anyway... I'll be a proud lab rat instead of a newbie entomologist :-)



  • I'm not sure that Russia is european country at all, but I've voted as Europe :) For me Russia is neither Europe nor Asia. It is Russia :D



  • Definetly :) All I was talking about was only geographic territory and continents.



  • I'm based in Auckland, New Zealand. So, I guess that comes under "Some other place".

    Ah! +1 for South America. I was away from the Internet when this poll was created.
    Greetings from Brazil ;)
