Bill Gates unleashes bugs on an unsuspecting audience

Bill Gates is awesome. I love what he is doing with his philanthropic effort The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.

For those who don't know, the foundation is the fourth-largest transparently operated private foundation in the world. The primary aims of the foundation are, globally, to enhance health care and reduce extreme poverty, and, in America, to expand educational opportunities and access to information technology.

Anyway, Bill made news this morning at TED2009 by releasing a jar of mosquitoes on the audience to make the point that 'Not only poor people should experience this'

Very creative, and a great way to get his point across.


  1. lol, not the first time he's released bugs on an unsuspecting audience.

    I kid

  2. If he ever gives a speech about rabies, I'm not going.
