Earlier this week, it was reported that Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, ponied up $25 million dollars to help the fight to contain and eliminate Ebola. No matter how much you earn, $25 million is a significant amount of money.

We hear all the time about extravagant expenditures from professional athletes and Hollywood celebrities, but when push comes to shove, there are few who earn more than those who are calling the shots in technology. Now, this isn't to say that their earnings are not warranted. In many cases, these high-earners begin companies and make decisions that leave serious footprints on the lives of millions.
