he is a person that will be instrumental in shaping how the biggest philanthropic effort in a century will happen - remember what j.p. morgan said - giving away money was harder than earning it.
to date, the gates' have been very conservative in their selection of charities.. this is in part good - no more 'pc's' to schools to drive out apples in a poor attempt at philanthropic business competition. however, i expect a lot of innovation and smarts from here... aiming at setting a radical new precedent for philantrhoopy.....
