Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    I just got done looking at the Young person list and the one just posted. It seems money is what makes people important on forbes. Personal actions are redundant.

    Nintendo Chairman isn't on there. No Sony president either. Richard Stallman of the GNU(www.gnu.org) creator for freedom of programming is on there. No Darpa leaders are on there, who actually invent everything great we love and evenly give artificial limbs and eyes to the blind and cripple for free -- Darpa can make polio vaccinations for the entire world in a fork night, but at least Gates give money to Africa and buys places without looking at history of it -- But then there is a reason Gates decided to quit investing money into great endeavors(over seas) and get back in touch with his Microsoft industry(that isn't really his company though but he just calls himself an advisor to it).
    Some people on there really deserve to be on there, as so does Gates... But I think forbes isn't really in touch with society at all.

    I'm also surprised none of the Olympic youth were in most inspiring young people. I told myself I wouldn't try to laugh at Mark Zuck-a-burg but he isn't really admired on the net as so many think. I'm glad he has been using his money for things other than making more programs that emulate other programs out there, however. Like, Spotify=pandora...I wont name a list of apps, because I'm not advertising, but they evenly made a program of e-books to try and topple www.openlibrary.org . But yea... Glad to see `Ol Myspace-facedbook creators are investing into SMART stuff now-days.

    Awesome list, Susan. Thanks for a) writing, and b) sharing. I'd add the inclusion of the crowdfunding components in the Jobs bill that passed this year. Maybe it needs to wait till the bill becomes a law, but opening more avenues for groups to help drive outcomes is reflective of the macro trend that is fundamental for how the world is working best right now.
