As we all know Gates is no longer in charge of Microsoft, and he explains a bit more of what exactly he wanted to achieve in his newly launch blog (which strangely enough has two different domain, one is http://www.thegatesnotes.com/ and the other is just http://www.gatesnotes.com/ )
In his blog he wrote :
“Since leaving my full time job at Microsoft to dedicate more time to our foundation, a lot of people have asked me what I’m working on. It often feels like I’m back in school, as I spend a lot of my time learning about issues I’m passionate about…I’m fortunate because the people I’m working with and learning from are true experts in their fields. I take a lot of notes, and often share them and my own thoughts on the subject with others through email, so I can learn from them and expand the conversation.”
It is Gill Gates that made modern computer ubiquitous and even today when we talk about computer Bill Gaets is still the top public figure that everyone knows and admires.
