Know your geek history

Thanks to Sears for sending me this link.

This is one of the funniest things I've seen in months. It's the staff of Microsoft from 1978. Gates is on the lower left. (Oddly, the guy in the middle of the top row is named Bob Wallace.) Every one of these people ranges from a multimillionaire to a multibillionaire, all because of the free market, and not politics. It might confirm what I've been saying for years--ultimately we are going to be ruled by Homo Computergeekizoid Nerdus. This might not be such a bad idea, considering what the State and politicians have done. All hail the new masters!

Welcome to the technocracy. Join us or face the pain. Once we've completed our takeove there's going to be some serious revenge on jocks and bullies.

By the way, since Matt finds all these good links, I think he should start his own blog. Drop a comment if you agree.



Those guys look scarily like my father and his buds back in the day. I’ve seen pictures. The ironic thing is that, despite bad similarly bad fashion choices, Bill Gates is very wealthy and my dad is an accountant. Go figure. I guess the clothes don’t necessarily make the man.

Oh, by the way, thanks for your comments lately Danny.

Speaking of Sears, isn’t that him in the picture.
3rd row, shaded glasses. Red goatee.
Looks like a young Matthew to me.
