Bill Gates

You guess it…. DATA…. Interesting to also see the CEO of SAS Institute hit number 84 with $4.4billion.

Time to start investing in data and analytics if you asked me! :)

Forbes has once again released its list of America’s richest people and, not surprisingly, Bill Gates topped the list with an estimated wealth of about $57 billion. But Gates isn’t alone as the only technology titan on the country’s list of the richest people. On the list again this year is Gates’ old partner Paul Allen, Sergey and Larry from Google, and Steve Jobs. New to the list is Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who sneaked in ahead of EMC’s Richard Egan and VC Vinod Khosla.
