Today, October 28, is the birthday of Bill Gates, the world’s richest man and maybe the most famous person in technology.
When Bill first asked me out, he said, “I was thinking maybe we could go out two weeks from tonight.” I told him he wasn’t spontaneous enough for me.
So he called me an hour later to suggest we get together that night. He asked: “Is that spontaneous enough for you?”
Bill, after two amazing decades together, your humor, drive, intelligence, curiosity, thoughtfulness, optimism – and, yes, your spontaneity – are as wonderful as ever. On land, at sea, and everywhere in between, I’m glad you’re by my side.
Happy, happy birthday.
The American business magnate, philanthropist and inventor is 60 years-old today.
