Bill Gates longs for a lower position on the list of the world's wealthiest people that he has dominated for over a decade.
"I wish I wasn't. There is nothing good that comes out of that," Gates said at the MSN Strategic Account Summit. "You get more visibility as a result of it."
A mere slave of the corporate payroll, I can't really relate to Gates' hardship. But my hopes of getting some further insights were squashed, as I got none. Gates didn't really dive into the curse of his massive fortune. He even mentioned that he is still comfortable going around in public and has no problems signing the occasional signature.
Gates' wealth dilemma must be something like being a 100k frequent flier member. It's heaven the first time you get there. But soon you realise that even with preferred boarding privileges a flight from Boston to San Francisco is one of the most boring things on earth.
