GeneralRoles for the first ten employees of a high-tech start-up II Pin

I enjoyed RogelloP's current post on this topic, but, on reflection, I found such a variance between the person-types listed in his post and my actual experience working in various software companies, including a start-up, that I feel compelled to publish my own list:*

1. schizophrenic creative visionary who typically communicates in grunts
2. best college friend of #1 who never held a job for longer than two months before this one, and is into S&M
3. ex-felon convicted of securities fraud, and tax evasion
4. manic-depressive hyper-verbal former philosophy master's degree holder
5. former assembly language programmer only familiar with printer-drivers for long-discontinued ink-jet printers
6. alcoholic former zookeeper fired for willful negligence of the animals in their care
7. programmer from India, or China, or Taiwan
8. vegetarian meditator recently convicted of spiking trees
9. drag-strip racer, gun hobbyist, military memorabilia collector, amphetamine user
10. anal-retentive compulsive-obsessive high-Asperger savant

Relation of these persons to their job titles:**

1. only one person can have the following titles: CEO/President, CTO/Chief Scientist, CFO/Accountant

2. more than one person can have the following titles: programmer, marketer, public relations (aka 'booth bunny,' or 'booth stud'), janitorial, massage therapist, psychiatrist, janitorial, network/site admin, unpaid intern

* Note: Any resemblance of the persons described here to certain well-known CP members is purely serendipitous, although, given quantum electrodynamics, one cannot rule out extra-sensory influence, or the possibility of hive-mind thought-control.

** Note: This is not to imply there is some causal relationship between background, experience, and capability, of these persons, and the job title they may hold.
I have diligently numbered the days of pure and genuine happiness which have fallen to my lot: They amount to 14. Abd-Ar Rahman III, Caliph of Cordoba, circa 950CE.
