I'm part of a local effort to bootstrap a service provider, but 
had to drop out for a while, because of baby-related and other
workload issues.

I'm not sure I would want to rely on U.S. alone. Establishing
some geographic diversity looks worthwhile.

The probability of me dying within the next decade or two is
rather low. Otoh, at 40 the life insurance is not so cheap anymore.
Right now I can't spare the cash, since working on own company
bootstrap. Things should become much better in a couple years.

I'm not very impressed with people in U.K. (I'm currently based in Southern Germany).
To be frank, I'm not impressed with the current quality consistency anywhere.
(No, I don't have too high standards, I've just seen enough of how things should
be done properly). I *do* hope that situation will improve in 40-50 years, when
I'll need it.
