    Bill engages in quite the "who invented it first" smackdown near the end.

    Best example of my favorite game I've ever seen.

    Yeah, that was utterly hilarious. I laughed out loud when I read that part.

    Another thing I wasn't aware of until I read that interview was Anybody have any of these lectures? They are pretty spendy, but they look awesome. I also find it funny that billg even knows what "pretty spendy" is, considering he is worth a jazillion dollars (too bad that's only like 5 euros nowadays).

    You don't build a corporation the size of Microsoft and end up worth a jazillion dollars without being keenly aware of how you spend your money.

    That's one of the reasons why the Gates Foundation is so well respected, he runs it like a corporation. He's very particular about who he gives money to, and expects to see results if he is going to put the Foundation's money towards some program.
