| 1 Comment

Bill Gates sure knows how to get people's attention. But at the Technology, Entertainment, and Design Conference this week, it didn't take any high-tech tools to perk up the crowd, according to this article.


Gates unleashed a jar full of mosquitoes on the business, arts, and science leaders in the audience at the elite conference in in Monterey, Calif., to make a point about malaria.

"There is no reason only poor people should be infected," he told them.

He paused before telling them the insects were disease free.

The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation has pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into vaccination and disease-prevention programs in developing countries.
