Dinner with Bill Gates

29 May

The ‘D’ Conference is always filled with surprises, and a nice one came last night when Microsoft founder Bill Gates came to our table and joined us for dinner. It was already an interesting group (Esther Dyson, Gordon Crovitz, Don Graham, Craig Mundie, Ann Winblad were there and others (such as Nathan Myhrvold and Tim O’Reilly) joined us off and on as the dinner progressed.

Staci blogged about it here –> http://www.paidcontent.org/entry/419-d6-serendipity-supper/

It’s true that during the two and a half hours we covered in detail everything from malaria in Africa to monetizing paid search with stops on nuclear power and childhood education in between. Gates may not have technically finished college (yet), but there is no doubt that his brainpower is hard to equal.

    Hi Craig – well, now I know why I don’t hear from you very often. 🙂 Hope all’s well.
