We heard from MSNBC that Bill Gates, the man behind Microsoft, will be stepping down from day-to-day operations at the software giant he co-founded to focus on philanthropic work.
Granted, Bill will not be completely divorced from the company he co-founded. He just won’t wear as many hats with the same level of hands-on attachment he has had since the company started in the late 1970’s.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has done more charitable work than any other modern organization. Granted, that doesn’t match up with the legendary widow’s mite... but Bill seems to have an agenda to tackle some of society’s great problems with his multiple billions of dollars.
