    William H. Gates III, cofounder and chairman of Microsoft Corp., had returned to talk technology and share his vision of a future empowered by software innovation, not to wax nostalgic about his aborted college days nearly 30 years ago. But he couldn't help recalling that, in April 1975, at Harvard's old Aiken Computation Laboratory, on the site where he now sat, he had written a software program for the Altair computer -- a program that evolved into Microsoft's first product.

    Maxwell Dworkin feels like a cave/prison to me. Strange that Gates would seem to like that. I find it really interesting that it borders on the law school campus.

    It is good to have an icon in the computer industry to encourage students to study computer science. The problem is that he is just trying to build up his empire monopoly status.

    Why do they need to hire that many college grads?

    To find and fix those exploits and security holes perhaps?
