Bill Gates’ Last Day

Most techies are aware by now that this was Bill Gates’ final week as the top dog at Microsoft, but the question continues to be asked whether or not the tech superstar will continue building his legacy. MSNBC reports that Gates will continue in a leadership capacity, albeit at his charitable organization, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and will work to alleviate the food crisis currently afflicting portions of Africa and the rest of world.

However, although the Foundation has been most associated with the work of its offspring grant group, the Global Health Program, the Foundation has contributed immensely towards secondary and post-secondary educational institutions here in the United States. Universities such as Duke and Carnegie Mellon have benefited from the good will of the organization, and I hope that they continue to fund American scientific endeavours by promoting higher education.
