5:01 developers -- those developers who punch out at 5:01 and never think about technology again until 9am, the people who don't read programming blogs or attempt to advance their craft, these developers have neither vision for technology, nor ambition in their field. Where the 501 Manifesto errs.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, I think the 5:01 manifesto has its heart in the right place, but work-life balance doesn't mean leaving your love of programming and technology at the office. I use my skills in programming and system administration for all sorts of projects around the home; to me it's no different than my ability to drive a nail. Work-life balance is extremely important, and you're not going to find it by blindly following some guide on the internet.
