|I'm a serial bootstrapper/software engineer that has been consulting remotely for clients in between trying to start different lifestyle businesses.|
I'm living in a small town away from any tech hubs, I feel like I have access to the best of whats happening in tech via the web but sometimes feel like my career is being hurt by not being in sillicon valley.
The lifestyle is laid back here, and things are cheap. I'm not in any kind of rat race. But am I just staying in my comfort zone and missing out?
I would be very interested to hear thoughts of devs who have lived in sillicon valley and whether or not they find it worth the high rents.
