Jeez these people starting 5,6, or 7 companies. I'd be happy with one. Makes me wish I stayed in college ;)

Yeah, the whole Max Levchin article gave a major, "Man in the Grey Flannel Suit" moment. Should I start doing all-nighters and obsessively work on a project? Or, should I enjoy the happy life I have with my wife and daughter? If you want a major brain buster: check out CNet for the sale of indeed.com. I'll leave the details as a "surprise."
