An interesting article here about the balance between work and life. Er, rather, that there is no balance.
"At Microsoft, my definition of balance was getting a decent number of hours outside the office and off email. Now I don't care about that, because the email I check at midnight may come from a person who says he wants to endow a school in Vietnam. So I can't help but read that email, because it's a chance to change a kid's life."
Wouldn't it be great to have a job that had so much impact like that?
