Among the classes of people who’ve contributed significantly in building the world of today, computer geeks are the pre-dominant, we must say. And one of those computer geeks who holds a major part in that is Max Levchin, one of the founders of Paypal, a software technology without which the world would’ve been a much difficult place to live in.At the age of 39, Levchin doesn’t just take the credit of owning Paypal but is also one of top most innovators of the world today having found the social networking service, Yelp and the photo sharing site – Slide.
And yes, he also happens to be one of the youngest board members of Yahoo.Born in U.S.S.R into a Jewish family, Max Levchin and his parents moved to the United States in his very early years under political asylum. It can therefore be said that he grew up pretty much like just another ordinary kid of America. Except that his skills with the computer were anything but ordinary. He was what we could call one of those computer geeks who was blessed with an innate genius in the field.
