True, but with a lot of the past 20 years super wealth being made in tech, it is hard to predict where the current 1st generation super wealthy will came from.
Brin, Page, Gates, Allen, Zuckerberg, Jobs, Ellison, Doerr and many, many others have different backgrounds.
The only one that I know of that came from wealth is Gates, and his Dad was wealthy, not super wealthy.
