On the day I first logged onto the forum, I subscribed to receive every post made and I read every single one. Hey….I’m retired…I have plenty of time!
I also have plenty to learn and am still eager to do that. I have watched the forum bloom, then die down a bit, then explode again…which is what it’s doing right now. Part of the recent explosion is due to more owners joining the forum, which is a very good thing. I cannot know some information like gender and age, so my observations are not based on a scientific study, but the forum seems to be comprised by the following demographics;
• Most owners are male
Most all the owners would seem to be between the ages of 30 and 50
A huge percentage of owners are educated in computer coding and/or development and have good experience with using vector software.
Most owners own and have experience with other types of machinery.
A vast majority are into woodworking
Although I am very computer and tech savvy and love new technology, if there were a “way far out left field” I would be in it.
I am female
I am 70
I am not educated in coding/dev. at all, but am attempting to learn some of the software
I have no other, nor have I used any other types of machinery
Have not done any woodworking.
I am beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed by all of this. My creative ambitions have been visual rather than creating with my hands
These are not complaints, merely observations…which still leaves me very excited to begin this new adventure with Glowforge. I appreciate being able to ‘expound’ here on the forum. There’s only one way…up and forward!
