In a test of TrackBack, I refer to my brother's post Dot-coms to hot-dogs? on his site.

He's talking about how many previously rich dotcommers are now finding jobs in less high tech, more service sector areas like selling food. Matt seemed to think this sounded gloomy.

My response was:

"Well I don't think it's so entirely depressing. America is unlike the rest of the world where wealth often takes precedence over personal time.

The rest of the world seems to be having much more fun and taking many more vacations than us.

The real question is are the people happy in their new jobs. If so, then it's probably a good thing. Life is short. Far too short to waste most of your time focused on a bank balance instead of a balanced life."

Maybe I just need a vacation...
