Technology is tricky, eh? It's great on the upswing, but it sure does hurt when it starts to get replaced by the next big thing.

I can't help but think of a friend of mine who is an engineer. About forty years ago he did consulting work for a small company that paid him partially with company stock, because actual cash was tight. The stock wasn't worth much, but he must have liked the people running the company, because he kept it. That little part of the account is now a 7-figure position that he can leave to the kids. The company's business? Gravel and rock.
