At 30, he had enough – he completely abstained from all substance abuse, and started the first of many businesses. Now at 35, he’s financially free.

I am writing this in early 2011, but perhaps this article will be more interesting 5 years from now. But here is what is going to happen in the next few years.

Video games with virtual reality that can eat your mind and time.
