I am an ex-physician, have studied mechanical engineering for a while, and have a master degree in product design.

Now I work designing diagnostic equipment (surface EMG, posturography, pedobarography), working with system requirements, data visualization, and GUI design, and the like.

I am also a die-hard cyclist, be it trails (not much nowadays), off-road, commuting, touring or randonneuring. Besides, I have deep interests in bike design and mechanics.

comment Have fair-skinned peoples ever been the lower/oppressed class?
Just to be "clear", I didn't want to start a flamewar or trolling, just to make a point that the very way that can be chosen to name skin color of other ethnies already carries, by itself, a prejudice-related, charged implication. Nice discussion.

Actually the very term "fair-skin" (as opposed to what, "unfair", "ugly"...) is questionable.
