All those conferences i happily visit them - yet in most cases you  
just see governments overrepresented there and a few lost companies  
that want to sell equipment. Now companies are interesting to me yet  
not for the sort of question written down here.

The real scientists hardly show up there.

I can give some extreme examples.

As for Germany, realize that in vaste majority of IT related  
companies there, you won't even get a manager without PHD degree.

My shelves here are overloaded with PHD thesises from German guys  
which i would qualify as 'management paper'. Utter useless
writings - you can waste hours reading it and it just wastes your time.

So a master degree won't be Andrew Holways goal - a PHD will be - if  
he wants to become manager :)
