Dynamic Duos

I was browsing the internet today and somehow started reading about a certain company's founders. This pair has so much intelligence between them, and they seem to really want to make the world a better place. Well, thinking about them gave me the idea to write about the greatest duos in history and contemporary society -- greatest to me, that is. So I'm giving you 5 pairs for now, and I want YOU to come up with some yourselves! Please, leave a comment!

5. Steve Jobs & Bill Gates

4. George & Ira Gershwin

3. Disney & Pixar

2. Rogers & Hammerstein

1. Larry Page & Sergey Bin -- That's right, they're the pair that inspired this whole post. Google's mission is "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." If only Google had the need to create more content -- I would apply for a position directly.

And just for fun: Bosom Buddies

Thing I'm thankful for: board games.

How about Marie and Pierre Curie? I think they had an important role to play in the way the world is now, from a science point of view. Sure, someone would have discovered it later, but they were there, and should be praised. Nice blog by the way :)

Hm. I actually did think of the Curies, but then I thought, "If I put the Curies on here, then I have to include all my favorite scientists!" And I wanted to keep the list to a minimum.

Bonnie and Clyde. Thelma and Louise. Sonny and Cher. Do any of those count?

I'd have to go with Jobs and Woz, the original Apple duo.

Creative differences broke up the band evenutally, but both set out to change the world and both managed it, albeit separately in the end.

Artists Charles and Ray Eames (they were married).

Yeah, I was going to say the Curies, too. But I'll add that a little Page/Plant action makes the world go 'round, eh? Adam and Eve were sorta significant, too.
