Great to see him the icon give back to society. Do you know the tax implications this would have?

@joeyhirendernath great indeed, idk the taxation part ... but I guess not much or at all

I'm inspired by his note at the end: "A much more admirable form of philanthropy than mine involves the giving of personal time and effort. I've done little of that."

Here he is giving away $758 million, but he sees giving personal time and effort as more admirable. That is so interesting.

@nathanworden indeed, great note ... more admirable and effective with impact ... one thing to donate $ to your local charity, homeless shelter or retirement houses ... one thing to go there, buy some stuff and hand it over in person ... money helps, but the fact that someone thought about them is another dimension
