>> At least in my POV, this "chase your dreams, the money will follow" is dangerous when it is not accompanied by simple supply and demand. <<

I agree with this. I'd also add, though, that neither is it necessarily a good thing to "chase the money" in a profession that is likely to make you miserable. Being a Silicon Valley technical professional, I've seen way too much burnout, too much stress, too many long hours, too much unhappiness from a hyper-paced 24/7 society on Internet time, too little time to enjoy the large paychecks they were pursuing.

There's got to be a happy medium in there somewhere.
