It's certainly in the grand tradition of Andrew Carnegie (maybe Rockefeller and a few others, too). I think many of today's Really Rich are going to take a "you go first" attitude (Gates is certainly ahead of most - but when you've got a zillion $$, giving away .99*zillion still leaves you with a comfortable sum, and it's certainly preferable to letting Uncle Sam get it when you drop dead.
