Found 2 videos on youtube about Bill Gates who wil be stepping down from working full time in Microsoft to a part time basis. The first video was presented in the 2008 CES, and it’s realy the first time that I’ve seen Bill “acting” on screen and trying to be funny. I even wonder if he was the real person or was it someone else who just look like him.
From July 2008 onwards, Bill Gates will become a part-time employee and chairman.
Effective July 2008 Bill Gates, chairman, will transition out of a day-to-day role in the company to spend more time on his global health and education work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The company announced a two-year transition process to ensure that there is a smooth and orderly transfer of Gates’ daily responsibilities, and said that after July 2008 Gates would continue to serve as the company’s chairman and an advisor on key development projects.
As for those who are thinking that he’s retiring, he’s obviously not.
“Part-time for Bill Gates is full-time for anyone else in this industry. I remember when he got married. People said, ‘Oh, this will slow him down.’ But it didn’t.”
