PDC Day 1: Pharaohs:
"So I think that might have been a bit of a downer for Bill. The pharaohs were not just concerned with the day-to-day of their kingdom; they were halfway between mortals and gods, and had to adjust their thoughts aoocrdingly. Bil Gates is not just thinking about developers, he's thinking about information in general. 30 years in, and there still remains a larger mountain beyond the mountain he can see. It's a wearying thought, and Bill looked weary. Until he got to the last bullet item on the last slide, which said simply, 'software is the key'. And them, finally, Bill smiled."
