Where to Go After a Lifetime in IT?


If you have a nest-egg, like ownership of your house, you can consider moving to some 3rd world country. Like Costa Rica. The typical $400K American home can be replaced with an equal if not nicer $100K home in a lot of these countries. Then get a job teaching CS at the local university. I’m sure they will love to have a native english speaker with real-world industry experience. The pay won’t be much, but combined with the rest of your nest egg you should be able to live comfortably with a low-stress, high-reward job in a really nice climate.

another great slashdot discussion.
