Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook during his college days at Harvard University. He seems to be drawn back to the east coast for the purposes of recruiting new talent. “If I were starting now, I would have stayed in Boston, Silicon Valley is a little short-term focused, and that bothers me.” Boston is said to be deep with talent when it comes to technology.

With the passing of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates is getting pushed onto the back burner. Steve Jobs was a great man and a great CEO but what about Bill?

Donald Trump, a real estate mogul and self-made billionaire cracked some jokes about the protestors on Wall Street making such claims as “they don’t know why they’re there” and “I want to know who their tailors are”.

For a man contemplating on running for president, I’m not so sure these remarks have given him any sort of strategic advantag. According to C. Wright Mills, some of the qualities that make people famous are “Talent – which seems to mean their appearance value and their skill combined into what is known as A personality” (The Power Elite, 75).
