Re: <nettime> Gates' Buffet, or Fail-Safe Philanthropy


On the contrary, it impresses a great many people. Presumably, that's  
the point of collecting so much money in the first place, if like  
Buffett you don't intend to leave it to your offspring.  It would of  
course have been possible to run these businesses as non-profits,  
never collecting the billions to begin with.

Best,
Michael
