So I saw Bill Gates tonight. Interesting, right? It was, in fact. His lecture wasn’t anything revolutionary, but it was well done and I enjoyed it. Probably only because now I can say I’ve seen Bill Gates, but that doesn’t matter much. It’s strange, how amazingly normal he looks. Just some middle aged guy, head bobbed forward because he’s been sitting in front of screens most of his life and a voice that reminded me a Kermit the frog. Hard to believe that this is the richest man in the world. But hey, good for him. He was fairly likeable, although I’m not sure whether I went into it wanting to like him or not. The audience was mostly students, who are of course fairly critical of him but also begrudgingly respectful. Not the worst of reputations, I suppose. I’m glad I got to go.
