Hi, I’m Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ask me anything.
Many of you know me from my Microsoft days. The company remains very important to me and I’m still chairman. But today my full time work is with the foundation. Melinda and I believe that everyone deserves the chance for a healthy and productive life – and so with the help of our amazing partners, we are working to find innovative ways to help people in need all over the world.
I’ve just finished writing my 2013 Annual Letter http://www.billsletter.com. This year I wrote about how there is a great opportunity to apply goals and measures to make global improvements in health, development and even education in the U.S.
I’ll be answering your questions live, starting at 10:45 am PST. I’m looking forward to my first AMA.
UPDATE: Here’s a video where I’ve answered a few popular Reddit questions – http://youtu.be/qv_F-oKvlKU
UPDATE: Thanks for the great AMA, Reddit! I hope you’ll read my annual letter www.billsletter.com and visit my website, The Gates Notes, www.gatesnotes.com to see what I’m working on. I’d just like to leave you with the thought that helping others can be very gratifying. http://i.imgur.com/D3qRaty.jpg_
