So I'm likely going to have the chance to throw a question at Bill Gates. Any ideas? Serious ones, I mean. I know there's gonna be several people telling me to ask, "Why does Windows crash so much?" or "Will you give me a million dollars?"
We are delighted to announce that Microsoft chairman Bill Gates will be here at UCSD next week for a Student Forum, and he is looking forward to meeting with students and other members of the campus community to discuss the future of computing technology. The event is free, and open to the public.
Date: Tuesday, May 27
Time: 12:45 p.m.
Location: Price Center Ballroom, UCSD, La Jolla, CA
Gates, who is also the chief software architect of Microsoft, will make brief remarks about "The Magic of Software in the Digital Decade." He will then join UCSD Chancellor Robert C. Dynes and me for an informal conversation, and we will end with a question-and-answer session.
In his remarks, Gates will describe his view that, by the end of this
decade -- a time he calls the 'Digital Decade' -- computing technology
will become so inexpensive, powerful and ubiquitous that it will be
seamlessly woven into the fabric of our society. Gates will also give his
thoughts on the ongoing role of research as it drives innovation in
academia and industry.
