While I can't begin to judge you without being in your shoes, I must admit I was disappointed to here your reasoning for leaving. I think it sends the message that in order to launch a start-up you need to be a single person in your 20s with no obligations... family people need not apply. I find this sad. I think it would have been a much more productive message if you would have announced that you were limiting your involvement to X hours a week and Y weeks a year and that you were going to work almost exclusively from home. It would have sent a message that balancing work and family is not only important but practical, especially for people in the software business. By quitting completely, it seems to convey that there is no middle ground between crazy 24/7 devotion and non involvement whatsoever, which I don't think is accurate. But despite all this, I wish you well and thank you for what you've added to make software development (and so many other topics) into much more of a community than it was before.
