10 Surprising Techie College Dropouts

Posted: Updated:

Time's Person of the Year Mark Zuckerberg is missing one notable thing from his otherworldly resume: a college degree. Though Zuckerberg famously conceived of his all-powerful social network in his Harvard dorm room, he eventually left the school to focus on the website full-time. Not a bad decision.

When it comes to his lack of credentials, Zuckerberg's in good company -- at least in the wide world of technology. The list of tech scions who left college before graduating runs long and contains many of the world's wealthiest men (if you know of any successful female dropouts, let us know at college [at] huffingtonpost [dot] com).

See below 10 tech luminaries who left school and hit it big. If we missed one, chime in below.
