I like what Bill Gates has done for the American economy in general, and for my career in particular. In return for my $350, he has indirectly provided me with over $100,000 worth of employment opportunities using Windows, Office, and Visual Basic. In a free market, the fact that someone gets fabulously rich means that he produces something that is universally desirable. If Bill's personality were more congenial, perhaps he'd be better liked. But if he weren't a nerd, he might not have made Microsoft so successful. At least he didn't become rich by making others poor, like some third-world oligarch. Thanks to Bill, the hardest work I do is to lift my arm from the keyboard to mouse when I click a button.
I'm a college dropout (actually, "required to withdraw" from Tufts), and I've managed to flunk freshman English nearly ten times. But I'm making $75,000 a year as a computer programmer, using virtually nothing I ever was taught in my computer science courses. Moral of the story: forget about degrees, it's accomplishment that counts. Sorry, I have to go because my non-technical boss will fire me if I surf the Internet any more today.
