If you have to watch just one more ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, make it this one from Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. He geeks out as only Bill Gates can do by drawing up and demonstrating quite the contraption.
It was only a matter of time before high tech execs got in on the ice bucket challenge for ALS awareness that has been sweeping across Facebook, Twitter and other social networks in recent weeks. Phil Schiller, Apple's SVP of marketing, has showered himself in freezing water and via Twitter, has challenged CEO Tim Cook to do likewise, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has challenged Bill Gates and others.
Following is the text of the address by Bill and Melinda Gates, philanthropists and co-chairs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as prepared for delivery at Stanford University's 123rd Commencement on June 15, 2014. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates recently stepped aside as Microsoft chairman and is now an advisor to the CEO. See a video recap of the Stanford speech here.
