1. You have to be really smart to become a billionaire boy-wonder.2. Musk and Zuckerberg are billionaire boy-wonders.3. Ergo, Musk and Zuckerberg are smart.4. By extension, everything they say must be right.
Bill Gates is a classic example - he merely said, "I reluctantly accept your offer" when IBM dumped the most lucrative contract in the world in his lap - effectively transferring the entire wealth of the largest computer company in the world into what would become the largest software company in the world. That's one time you don't want to leave your pen at home. And oddly enough, another computer guru - who actually had some programming smarts - turned down the deal, which allowed Gates to accept it. Smart and lucky!
