    The guy is a true power house. His reach stretches so far into so many different philanthropic arenas that it kind of saddens me that he's still mostly known for his association with Microsoft. If Steve Jobs was a "hero", this guy should be a saint...because truly, outside of assisting with the development of both Microsoft AND Apple, he extends his knowledge and abilities to so many other not for profit and actual HELPFUL things in this world, the fact that he's not up on a pedestal like Jobs was is a bit disheartening, and it shows that Jobs love was really rooted in charm and popularity.

    He will be some day. I forget where I read it. But it was a profile on him a good while back. The striking comment was something along the lines of; In 20 years parts of the world will be building statues of Bill Gates while Steve Jobs will be forgotten. A little harsh, but IMO true. His foundation's work supporting HIV and malaria research is nothing sort of amazing.

    Disclaimer, I am a research scientist. So his work really resonates with me.

    I've always respected and admired Bill Gates, especially with he and his wife's philanthopical (sp?) work. Thanks for posting this!
