URL: http://garrickvanburen.com/,

From _why the luck stiff to Mark Pilgrim, the world of the internet is filled with people that have reached a high profile point in their career and then… went completely gone dark.

A search for ‘Depression’ brings up 3,423 results at Hacker News. ‘Burnout’ – 682 results.

Let’s have a frank discussion about identifying the signs of burnout, how to overcome them, and how to find happiness doing the work we do.

Without needing to completely disappear.
