It seems that Bill Gates is no longer at the top. Surprisingly, Mexico’s telecoms tycoon Carlos Slim has overtaken Bill Gates to become the world’s richest person. Maybe it is a sign that telecom is where the money’s at and that software has had its day. The weirdest thing is that Mr. Slim comes from an area that you may have previously joked about, when compared to Billy’s own wealth.
Now, let’s just hope that this guy can do something really interesting with his money. Whatever happened to the richest and most powerful building monuments, wonders and just being crazy?
