Bill Gates @ (Ted Talk 2009) hopes to solve some of the world’s biggest problems using a new kind of philanthropy. In a passionate and, yes, funny 18 minutes (Subject: Bill Gates: How I’m trying to change the world now), he asks us to consider two big questions and how we might answer them.

In this presentation he spoke about two issues: malaria and education reform.

“I brought some mosquitoes – we’ll let them roam around the auditorium. There’s no reason only the poor should experience this” Gates jokes.

Bill Gates recommends the book about KIPP, “Work Hard, Be Nice” by newspaper reporter Jay Matthews to his TED audience.

Bill Gates discussed:

  1. The need for better education
  2. The need for better teachers
  3. The need for better technology to serve the students and the teachers

I am motivated by his presentation and I hope everyone watches it and learns something that they can remember for the rest of their lives.
