This is good, Jon. Thanks. I find hero worship of rich business leaders does a disservice to all of the poorer business owners and farmers who barely stay in the game against all random threats that require them to be inventive, stubborn, wise and caring just to stay alive. Most of their created wealth ends up in the coffers of the few guys like Gates (or his lawyers and bankers) that got in the right places or started with an advantage. The System of systems favors the stubborn entrenched systems, not so much hard work and intelligence.
