    The WSJ had an article this week about Bill Gates' "Think Week" which ended this week. Bill goes to an undisclosed beach and lives in a cottage for a week. There he reads hundreds of technology articles and contemplates the future of technolgy and Microsoft. I thought it was kinda funny.

    Here's another link incase no one subscribes to wsj.com.

    He's an interesting character.

    Side Note: Does anyone know if the whispers about him having autism (maybe Asperger's) are true?

    I always though there was something "different" about him. If he does it's not very developed, you know considering he is the richest man in the world.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least... I have it myself (Asperger's, that is, not autism).
