    Did anyone catch this article on Wired?

    A quote:
    So far the discussion thread for the article seems overwhelmingly negative towards the author. My main problem with the article aside from the fact that I find judging a person based on their public contributions to charity extremely distastasteful, is that he bases his conclusions on "non evidence" rather than solid evidence.

    "You are not on that list as a publicity seeking donor, so you must not be doing any good for your fellow man."

    What kind of crap is that?

    Lemme get this straight. According to this guy, Bill is a great guy cause he's giving 99% of his fortune away, while Steve is a bad person because he isn't? Makes me think someone in here likes Microsoft. Maybe Steve is an anonymous doner. Maybe he wants to save it up for a big money giving bash later. Maybe umpteen foundations are in his will. Who knows? Judging someone by how much money they give others is just a cheap way of showing how much they like someone who just happens to give away a bucket o' money.
