73 billion last laughs for the 11 biggest geeks of all time

By wedging the financial pages in the middle of its paper, the Guardian has subtly inveigled me, and I suspect many others, to read some of the financial news. I certainly never bothered when it was at the end of the paper.

Today's finance pages offered a real treat. A photo from 1978 of those 11 Microsoft founders who are now worth $73 billion, together with details of what they are doing (or in one case, unfortunately, not doing) now.

What a photo! Geeks or what?! But they have the last laugh now - or several last laughs - in fact, 73 billion of them.
