Bill Gates is Now the World's Second Richest Man, Steve Jobs is 136th

Bill Gates Dethroned as World's Richest Man

Microsoft founder, Sundance table-dancer, Facebook-phobe, and billionaire Bill Gates is no longer the world's richest man, according to Forbes Magazine's 2010 Billionaires List. Even though his wealth rose by billions to hit $53 billion this year, he was out-billionaired by Mexico's Carlos Slim Helu, a telecom mogul who beat Gates's wealth by a mere half-billion dollars. Meanwhile, red-carpet walking Steve Jobs comes in at 136.

While Bill may no longer be the richest man in the world, he's certainly been keeping busy. Facebook may intimidate him, but he has joined Twitter and started a blog to highlight his foundation's work. And even though he's officially stepped down from his post at Microsoft, I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more about his future endeavors for a long time.
