Quote of the Day

Bill Gates: “Not in some dramatic way. . . . There are some particular things that went on. But the fundamentals of, you create a company, you have a good idea, you get to hire people. . . . When you do that, the kind of thing that allowed Microsoft, or other great technology companies, to come along . . . I don’t think we’re going to do anything that would really blunt those kind of opportunities, and the huge societal benefits that it creates.”
