Shel Isreal on Why do people hate Bill Gates Shell Israel is off to a good start in his brand new blog. I couldn't agree more. Gates and the Gates Foundation don't get the respect they reserve. At least in the tech community. I'm sure in the World Health community or the Philantropy community he gets plenty of credit.
In his last paragraph, Shel says: "A century from now, the Gates Foundation will be known for the human suffering it battled and hopefully defeated." To which, I add: "A century from now, who will have heard of Microsoft or Longhorn....?"
