While you're at it, can you produce an automated script that mass emails all of the actuaries? You can create different templates for each subfield (Pensions, P&C, Life, Health).

I imagined the data being parsed by some sort of program, which would run periodically to update the map. If not, that would be rather difficult to maintain. But if he's writing scripts on a state-by-state basis, it might not be too hard, especially with some community support.

I think this problem could be made easier if we set up a grouping system, where things are split up into small, medium, and large offices. Say 3 or less, 3-20, 20+. Although I'm not sure what specific numbers would be best to use, this might be an effective way to show candidates roughly how big a place is.

It does happen. I'll hopefully get around to changing some of these.

I don't see why creating tools such as this couldn't be classified as a hobby.

Btw, were you an actuarial science major?
