It's official: Microsoft chairman Bill Gates is a prophet of the information age. At least according to high school students in Beijing. In a survey by the Social Investigation Centre of the China Youth Journal, 23% of Beijing secondary school students had read Gates' book, The Road Ahead.
Gates has become a best-selling author and a bit of an icon over there, with his book selling more than 400,000 copies. "We hope to learn from Bill Gates and perhaps emulate him," said one young, aspiring entrepreneur. Hong Kong beckons.
