LIVE! Bill Gates is about to speak @ University Of Washington: Watch the stream here!

27 Oct

Bill Gates is set to give a talk today for an event at the University of Washington’s School of Computer Science and Engineering. It starts at 3:30PST, so in just about 15 minutes.

Here’s the stream: http://www.livestream.com/billgates

The topic will be advances in computing, including natural user interfaces and pervasive computing that could change the way the bottom 1/3rd of the world’s population lives. For all the fanfare about the 99% here in the states, it’s humbling to remember that to much of the world, we are the 1% with adequate fresh water, free and comprehensive public schooling, working sewage and other basic utilities, and so on.
