Comment on "Wired on Steve and Bill's Social Status"
by Drew — Jan 26
James - right on. I saw Gates on Time magazine; I hardly think he's suffering from a lack of public respect. What he and his wife are doing with the Gates Foundation is truly amazing.

But what Kahney's not considering here is that charitable giving is just one of many ways to "give back." Creating opportunities for self-sufficiency is another. Jobs built a company that employs a lot of people, and his growing field of products allow other companies to make new products (Bose, anyone?); those companies employ people, and so on. Offering someone a job is better than offering them a handout.
