I’m Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ask Me Anything.
I’m excited to be back for my seventh AMA. I’ve learned a lot from the Reddit community over the past year (check out this fascinating thread on robotics research), and I can’t wait to answer your questions.
If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to (besides waiting in line for hamburgers), I recently wrote about what I learned at work last year.
Melinda and I also just published our 11th Annual Letter. We wrote about nine things that have surprised us and inspired us to take action.
One of those surprises, for example, is that Africa is the youngest continent. Here is an infographic I made to explain what I mean.
Edit: I have to sign-off soon, but I’d love to answer a few more questions about energy innovation and climate change. If you post your questions here, I’ll answer as many as I can later on.
Edit: Although I would love to stay forever, I have to get going. Thank you, Reddit, for another great AMA: https://imgur.com/a/kXmRubr
