  • Blog Post: Rethinking Philanthropy

    I stumbled across this post from CNN simply because I loved the photo above of Warren Buffett and Bill Gates having a laugh in a diner.  After chuckling at the collection I went on to read the post itself. Wow….what a read. It’s long but worth it if you have any interest in philanthropy or who big...

  • Blog Post: Bill Gates: Innovating to zero

    Great to see Bill’s TED 2010 talk up already. I was just reading last night that his presentation style as well as content was brilliant so looking forward to watching. As Nancy Duarte says, “ Not sure who’s building his content or slides, but please keep them employed! ” [update] embed seems broken...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates has a new website

    Pretty self explanatory – you can find out what he’s thinking about , what he’s learning , his travels and more. It’s being described as a peek in to Bill’s mind and from my initial scan it looks promising. I genuinely hope that his new Twitter account that sits alongside it is used by Bill himself as...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates joins Twitter

    it’s a verified account so yes, it looks like BillG has joins the ranks of Twitter users…and he’s chatting away with Ashton Kutcher. The original post by NextWeb noted he had 241 followers but that has now leapt to just over 134,000 and I imagine will be well past the 500k range by the end of the week...
  • Blog Post: Impatient Optimists: Bill and Melinda Gates

    This doesn’t really need an introduction. it starts with some good humour in the intro from BillG and then quickly on to extremely important, moving content from Bill and his wife, Melinda. It’s an hour of education on the impact of vaccines, the eradication of Polio and the power of smart investment...
  • Blog Post: The next Bill Gates?

    Cool competition from XMA and Toshiba to find the next Bill Gates. My pal Hermione is holding the mic and as I watched it a couple of things struck me. iI’s interesting that Bill is still the benchmark (not Sergey or Larry)…and I suspect in 10 years this video would be very different as I think Bill...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates is making cows that don’t fart

    Okay, I’ve heard of Purple Cows but cows that don’t fart? Now that would make me stop and look…and smell :) In a wide ranging interview with Ina Fried Bill replied to a question about Intellectual Ventures Gates: That's right. We're going to make the cows that don't fart. You name it, we've got it under...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates talks Physics, Chrome OS, and Project Natal

    Ina Fried landed a series of great interviews and scoops with Bill Gates this week . He talked about Chrome OS, Project Natal (coming to Windows) and most interestingly Project Tuva. Tuva reminds me of the great Christmas Lectures from Chris Bishop at Microsoft Research. It’s a series of lectures by...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates and Demos

      Showing up For Life is the latest book by Bill Gates. Not that Bill Gates, but his Father…Bill Gates Snr. I imagine it’ll be quite a fun read as the man seems to have quite a sense of humour and in a short excerpt on Fortune’s website he talks about raising young Bill and the failure of his first...
  • Blog Post: Steve Ballmer, Bill Gates & Post-It Notes

    [image credit: 3M ]   Judge for yourself but I think Steve Ballmer delivered a solid speech at the Democratic Caucus Retreat last week which is captured in full at the Microsoft On The Issues blog. Just as an aside, I think they need more images on that blog to liven it up but I loved the BillG...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates 2.0

    For those following The Blue Monster story you will know the cartoon said “change the world of go home”….when I read TED’s title for this video they just posted it made me think Blue Monster. Their title is   Bill Gates: How I'm trying to change the world now   Check out the video – it includes...
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates, Bugs and Books

      Bill was on stage at TED today and caused a flutter in the audience and on Twitter when he released a troop of mosquitoes in to the audience. He was talking malaria and I’ve got to say, this sure sounds like it beat some of his CES demos.   “I brought some mosquitoes - we’ll let them roam...
  • Blog Post: Bill & Melinda Gates Annual Letter

    I don’t work for him any more but I still voraciously read what he writes and the first annual letter from Bill Gates regarding the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation doesn’t disappoint. It’s educational, humbling and quite pointed at times. Bill covers his work at the foundation and is candid about...
  • Blog Post: Melinda and Bill Gates: Saving Lives

      “For those to whom much is given, much is expected” – the words of Bill’s late mother.   Sort of spooky the way I read a tweet from James Tutt about this piece in The Times tomorrow right as I was posting the Girl Effect video you see below this post. They’re very related. Melinda and Bill...
  • Blog Post: bgC3 LLC

    New site Techflash kicked off with a pretty hot story. Get the news…albeit not much right now from Todd Bishop about Bill Gates’ new company.

  • Blog Post: Bill Gates on Creative Capitalism

        Okay, I’ll be honest and say when I first heard Bill talk about Creative Capitalism at Davos this year I sort of paid attention but didn’t read the detail as I assumed I knew what he was talking about. It turns out I was sort of right but reading Making Capitalism More Creative in TIME...

    See, I told you he had a good sense of humour :) Courtesy of Seattle PI
  • Blog Post: Bill Gates talks Cloud Computing, tees up Ozzie nicely

    I’ve been reading as much of the Bill Gates departure coverage as I can over the last week or so – I’m a huge fan of Bill and it’s fascinating to see the genuine respect for him from many quarters. I particularly enjoyed the PC Magazine Bill Gates Exit Interview , especially the section on The Power...
  • Blog Post: What Is Microsoft’s Global Foundation Services?

      Find out from the person who runs it - Debra Chrapaty . She talked with Om Malik at Structure08 last week and they cover plenty of ground – what, where and why is Microsoft investing >$2bn in datacenters, what is all the noise about containers and why this is more than just datacenters. ...
  • Blog Post: Thanks Bill

    Taken last summer during an awards reception in Orlando this has to be one of the highlights of my 10 years at Microsoft. The M$ bashers can say what the like - Bill changed the world and he’s off to do it again as he steps down from his full time role at Microsoft next week. It’s a little sad if I’m...
