Last week I got an email from someone at Microsoft asking if my dad was the president of Nigeria. I almost deleted the email without responding until I looked at the person’s email signature and it said "Executive Assistant to Bill Gates". So I responded and it turned out that Bill Gates was going to be in Nigeria over the weekend to meet with my dad and he wanted to chat before his trip.
I enjoyed reading this blog post by Dare Obasanjo (1st son of Nigerian president and Microsoft employee) that describes his recent meeting with Bill Gates. Why? It shows a different side of BillG – the guy that thinks about diseases, not software. Well written and an interesting perspective.
