Wow!! Great article! Speed+++

Anyone who hasn't read it, read it! Many key points are found therein:

1) Max isn't passionate about money, he's passionate about competition and WORK.
2) This guy is working 14 hour days because he loves his work.
3) Life is not all about money; after he cashed-out he was very unhappy because he had no new challenge to tackle. I totally relate to this: The solving of a new challenge/business is exciting.

A great 3 page read.

I found it interesting that there seems to be a sub-culture of people like Max around the Bay area. It appears to me that these people challenge and motivate each other to achieve more and more. After reading the article, it is no surprise why so many great businesses are coming out of the Bay every day. The kind of energy and drive that people like Max have is contagious!
