How far we've come...

An amusing observation I made while prepping my GDC schedule:

April Jones & Billy Cain have a session (which overlaps with mine) entitled:

"Developers are from Jupiter, Marketers are from Saturn: Learn the Secret Codes for Working with a Marketing Team"

At a GDC I attended (IIRC) 10 years ago, there was a session entitled:

"Product Development is from Mars, Product Marketing is from Uranus".

Nice to see we've moved a little closer to earth, and toward less confrontational metaphors :-)
