FORTUNE — Edited down to 2 minutes for your convenience, author Malcolm Gladwell’s provocative remarks about which entrepreneurs will be remembered 50 years from now and which forgotten:

In a nutshell, the bestselling author (Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers) and high-end public speaker (top fee: $80,000 per hour) put Microsoft’s (MSFT) Bill Gates on a pedestal (“there will be statues of Gates across the Third World”) and trashed Apple’s (AAPL) Steve Jobs (“Who’s Steve Jobs again?”).

His appearance at the Toronto Public Library on May 28 is available in full on YouTube in four parts, starting here.
