Jan 27, 2011: Riddle: who are these folks?



I hadn't seen this before, so maybe it's new to you.

I've often seen the picture below, however. The pic below is Microsoft in 1978. This picture above is the same people, 30 years later, in 2008 as Gates left the company. (There's one gent missing, who died, and one additional woman, who was an original employee who wasn't in the original group photo.)



It's highlighted now because Business Insider has put together an article detailing the whereabouts of everyone in the original shot. It's pretty interesting. You would imagine that all the first 12 employees at Microsoft would be fabulously wealthy. Not as much as you'd think.

One is the person whose side-business defaulted on contracts
on a basket ball arena, and caused our retirement plan losses
that showed up on our monthly pension checks.

He, himself, is worth millions or billions, but he says "it's just business"

So we get to pay for his personal indulgences, ego, and lack of integrity.

I had seen this photo before, but I didn't know anything about them.
( Except Bill Gates )Nice link, thanks.

Reminds me of the PBS series "Triumph Of The Nerds".
That was a great show. I especially liked the part about the guy who invented Ethernet. He sold it for a few hundred million dollars and retired.

Sounds like he went to the Bill Gates School of Business Ethics

Am I the only person who is bothered by the biog of Maria Wood where it says:
"it doesn't look like she did much else. She raised her children and became a volunteer."
This is nothing?

I see where you're coming from Limes, but I can also understand the thinking. She did what billions of other people around the world do, which hardly makes it noteworthy.
