Since we're young though, we're also creative, and can come up with many
different ways to make money, just in case the whole technology market goes

Gosh, does youth=creativity? Another thing I didn't know. Even old folks can
come up with ways to make a living in an unstable market, though...although
experience may be as important as creativity in that endeavor.

Yep, Susan. Experience counts for a lot. If not, many of us could be in
big trouble if the "whole technology market" imploded: too old to figure out
other ways of earning our keep and too young for Social Security.

to which, I add:

I guess if "the whole technology market" goes in the sewer, I can always go
back to working as a plumber/pipefitter. ;)

You don't have to be creative or young to snake a drain or fix a leaky pipe,
but experience helps.
