Gates Dollars is is a TCL program running on the free and open-source AOLserver based on Brad Templeton's Bill Gates Wealth Index and uses Philip Greenspun's Bill Gates Wealth Clock code to calculate Bill's wealth. You may want to view the source which was written by Aaron Swartz and tested by Ben Swartz. The concept is based on a discussion had with Andy H. If you hate this, there's still a chance you'll like the Info Network, my not-an-Internet-Startup organization dedicated to bringing real information to real people so they can do real things. Just in case you're interested, here's Microsoft's page on Bill Gates. (To people at Microsoft: It's just a joke -- you know, humor, ha ha funny. Oh well.)
