Bill Gates as a kid
William Henry “Bill” Gates II looks like an everyday kid in this pic with his bicycle, but no-one knew how much this young lad was going to change the face of technology. Gates came from a well-to-do background. It was at 13 while attending a private school that he discovered his love for programming. He wrote computer programs for his school and helped with scheduling. He formed Microsoft with Paul Allen, and dropped out of Harvard after two years. Because of the company’s early successes, he never went back, and never earned a degree.
