Second Most Powerful Wizard

In a poll of the most powerful wizards in the world, Slashdot currently has me as the second most powerful wizard in the world.  Gandalf received 1/3 of the votes in the poll, and I received one-fifth of the votes (under the title of “Excel PivotTable Creator”).

On second thought, the poll was probably referring, not to the developer, but to the actual “PivotTable Wizard” feature in Microsoft Excel, which aids in the creation of PivotTables within the spreadsheet. Notice how we always interpret things in terms most flattering to ourselves!






My name is Wesner Moise. I am a software entrepreneur developing revolutionary AI desktop applications. I worked as a software engineer in Microsoft Excel group for six years during the 1990s. I worked on PivotTables and wrote the most lines of code in Excel 97-- about 10 times the median developer. I have a Harvard BA in applied math/computer science and a UCLA MBA in technology entrepreneurship. I am a member of the Triple Nine Society, a 99.9 percentile high-IQ society.
