BILLG IN THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Most people wouldn’t highlight a little article in the Dallas Morning News regarding Bill Gates.  After all, the closest Bill ever got to officially setting up business in Dallas, Texas was Albuquerque, New Mexico when he started Microsoft, (or to be correct for the time period, "Micro Soft")… other than that, all his history outside of Harvard has been in the Pacific Northwest. 
 
But one of their business columnists wrote a very nice article about what the Billg announcement did and what it implies moving forward, summarizing his contributions and how Microsoft handled business analysts.  It’s a very easy read and makes some good points.
