A study indicates that many American believe the next "Bill Gates" will come from China or Japan.
Nearly half of Americans said that the next great technology leader will come from China or Japan, while just one in five believe he or she will hail from the United States. Thirteen percent think India will produce the next tech great.

The survey also showed that Americans overwhelmingly believe that the average 12-year-old knows more about the World Wide Web than their Congressman. Two-thirds of Americans also believe that the Internet will be accessible anywhere in the world in the next ten years.
