I don't know that I'd say that they are not bright. Jobs and Gates are both very bright people, which includes being bright enough to surround themselves with people who are very good at the things that they are not good at. Those two guys (and the other dudes around at the beginning) really did change the world with their innovations.You know what is strange is that many of these guys Jobs, Gates, they really aren't that bright at all. It was the people they had around them that that made them what they are. Many of them did reap the benefits too!
