Former Tech Executive Segues to Trucker

There have been any number of times while sitting through yet another incompetent vendor presentation (why don't they ever ask what I need?) that I have had fantasies of completely changing careers again and taking up long-distance trucking.

No, I am not a closet CB-radio fan or country music junkie, just someone who remembers fondly the freedom and peace of driving cross country.

This article in My Way, covers the story of the guy who sold Mosaic (which became Internet Explorer) to Microsoft and then ended up unemployed in the early 2000's. He got his big rig driving license and went on to start a small trucking company. He is still applying tech to the business, and sounds like he is having fun.
