The Daily Show with Bill Gates :o)

I caught this Monday showing finally last night. I record them but you can see it online at http://www.thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/mon-january-25-2010-bill-gates. I luv being able to record through the Verizon set box rather than having to purchase a set top box and then having it go bad three or more years later. That’s actually happened to us by the way.

It would appear retirement doesn’t mean the same thing to Bill as it does to most people. He’s only 54 and apparently kickin’ butt in the world of charity. The Gates foundation is continuing to bring innovations in health and learning to the global community.

Bill Gates reminds me of Thomas Edison who hired many, many scientists, paid them well, so that they could enjoy the fruits of their labor. Through Microsoft, we have many scientists working on interesting projects that most likely would not have seen the light of day for years to come. And now in Bill’s retirement, we see heath initiatives for poor countries and education programs for the United States that would not be funded otherwise.
