McAfee left Silicon Valley in the early 1990s. He currently resides in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, far from the fast-paced, high-tech, boom-and-bust scene of which he is considered to be one of the pioneers. In recent years, John founded Relational Yoga and the Relational Yoga Mandiram in Woodland Park, Colorado. He has been teaching self-discovery and breath-work techniques for more than fifteen years. McAfee has written life-change books such as The Secrets of the Yamas and Into the Heart of Truths.
McAfeeÂ’s high-tech career self-destructed in March 1992 when the Michelangelo virus failed to destroy the cyber world as he had predicted. Consequently, McAfee Associates Inc. first demoted the then Chief Executive Officer to Chief Technology Officer. The company then eliminated his company presence entirely. Rumors place McAfeeÂ’s Â“golden parachuteÂ” buyout from McAfee Associates Inc. at or near $100 million.
