When will the real estate market correct in the Bay Area?,
If history is any indication, the Bay Area will likely go into a recession in the 2nd half of 2017 or 2018. The bottom of the next real estate market will be around 2020-2022. However, the correction will not be very steep. 20%-25% maximum is my guess. This has been my guess for a couple of years now. Right or wrong, this is only one man's opinion.

Another rent vs buy -- on the iPod,
Don't listen to music. Don't watch TV much. Spend about $50/year on 4-5 finance and real estate books. Used books are quite cheap. I don't think I have spent anywhere near $1,500 on books. Some books can be downloaded for free.
Listen to finance and real estate podcasts when driving. They're also free. These subjects can also layer to life, on top of things, like thinking of ways to increase and protect financial wealth not only for this generation, but hopefully also for future generations. All in all, we spend about the same amount of money. We just have different interest. There is truly no right or wrong answer. Whatever floats your boat. :-)

I should have gone into computers....,
Hope all is well. It seems like software engineers currently rule the Silicon Valley. I have been out of the work force for almost 6 years now so I'm clueless on what's really going on out there. Instead of going to work every morning, I spend my morning sitting at home and thinking of ways to generate more wealth for myself and future generations.
Your comment about the road less traveled reminds me of this saying "Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won't so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't." Most people take the safe road by going to school, trying to get a good job after graduated and ending up working for others and making their bosses' dreams become a reality. Thus, I don't consider going into a minority field to be a road less traveled. Just my opinion of course.
