Ha, ha!! You think now that you can run and hide later. They ALL thought
that. And now they're stuck in Sunnyvale paying $5000/mo for a 3 bedroom

The weird thing is, it seems like this is happening everywhere: the Bay
Area, Austin, Atlanta, Tuscon.. You said even Minneapolis is starting to
get crazy. So what I'm wondering is, where are all of these people moving
away from?

There aren't enough geeks to have this kind of effect. It must be the
baby boomers.
