He is the founder of the climate depot, the author of the politically incorrect guy to climate change and more recently, the green fraud, why the Green New Deal? I prefer green new steel is even worse than you think Mark morano. Welcome to one on one. Thank you so much. Happy to be here today. So where have you just got back from? Did you just get back from what is ObamaCare, Scotland, completely fallaciously, the emerald isle? Where have you been Mark? I have been in the emerald well actually, I think that's Ireland. I've been in Scotland and I did not get to go. I was there for all last week. I did not get to go in one of these private jets like Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates or Al Gore, who were all at the conference as well. I had to fly commercial, but I was there all last week at this Glasgow summit and it was a doozy because I think even the longtime observers are saying, this is as Greta would say, a blah, blah, blah, summit. Not much has happened here except a lot of virtue signaling. So what is this? They're using this acronym cop. I didn't realize it's now running for multiple weeks. Well, what is this? What is this virtue signaling stand for and who, who is their Mark? Well, this is the United Nations climate summit. Cop stands for conference of parties. Bureaucratic language that they have every year. So next year's cup 27. This year's cop 25. And this whole process started in 1992 with the Rio earth summit that then Republican president George H. W. Bush signed and got us beholden to this big monster mess and then of course the first climate agreement they came up with was the Kyoto protocol when Clinton was president. And it's been going strong since then, annual basis. And they always pick exotic location. Scotland's probably the least exotic location that they've had it.

Maximizing Productivity and Efficiency Through Delegating With Tech Entrepreneur Aaron Kemmer

"Aaron all we have is time and how we use our time. Is everything so. Break it down for us. How do you know when it's time to delegate projects. He i love that. You know one thing. I often quip about time. As you only get like twenty eight thousand days in line you want to really optimize us when eight thousand days in behind me on my wall. I have a piece of paper that has you know a a little circle for each of those days showing that you could fit each day on one sheet of paper not a lot of time and it really goes by quick and you know i think there's that famous quip like you know you and bill gates have the same amount of time right But the one thing that you can do is maybe buy more time by by delegating. You know and i think a really good time to to start doing that is before you before you think you should or before you kind of get kind of overloaded Because when you delegate you need to make sure you have the time to train. Somebody coached them. Build out a little bit of a process And that's hard to do. If you're completely swamped working. Eighty to one hundred hours a week. You know for instance which many many entrepreneurs kind of have so one of my entrepreneurial goals is usually like get the ball rolling. I loved like kick start something and then try to hand off to someone who's like even better than me at least at that specific kind of project or skill said One thing magic right now get like a few hundred people A few other companies have kind of reached. This this is is well usually when you get to a certain size. Say way before that it's You know maybe out. If it's a half a dozen or a dozen you if you really important aspect of the business you wanna have at least one person focused on that one singular goal that you kind of want to accomplish So it's a really good time to start delegating so it's like i don't know if you're trying to grow the top of funnel of your business you probably don't want If you've got like a dozen people in the company you know your admin exact focus on top the final scheduling emails.

Ninety six appears to have been forgotten about for more than a century when he founded it page said several of the gravestones were toppled over and the cemetery itself was overgrown with weeds and brush once he realized the importance. A site page recruited family and friends to help revitalize the cemetery the crew spent hours clearing overgrown brush trees branches and rocks from sacred place. It is a nice little site we have out here and we just want to take care of it. Page said my mom wants to start giving flowers to keep it up. We're trying to do some work to fix this place up but the story doesn't end there while cleaning out. The cemetery page noticed a familiar last name on several of the gravestones. The markers belonged to israel seth and zachariah gates at first page that he didn't think anything of it it wasn't until he reached out to malcolm that he realized the significance.

I mean you're you're right to ask and it's all kind of coming together in a very I don't have evidence that it's all coming together in a plea preplanned way except knowing what campaigns at the very highest levels look like it's clearly a pincher movement right the one way or another. What my read is is a former political consultant. Is that the people who helped elect the biden administration. Whether it's big tech big pharma. Some combination of those bill gates You know had a deliverable and the deliverable was clearly seventy percent vaccinated and vaccine passports. And why is this attractive. You and i have talked about it. I warned everyone about it. In april i tried as hard as i can. And i have to say our warnings. Our conversations have borne fruit. Because i'm so sorry that youtube declaring you're trying to based on what you and i spoke about and i hope this conversation survives but when tech companies like microsoft which is one of the companies that has the contract have vaccine passports. They will be more powerful than any administration really. They'll be more powerful than nation states. So that's what they want and they weren't getting it right.

"bill gates" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"The fuck god but what this means is that from the beginning gates placed burnishing the public image of a finance company on equal footing with actual virology right in april of twenty twenty with the entire country. Locked the fuck down and the virus just beginning to bite. Bill gates launched the covid nineteen act. Accelerator this program was geared towards organized the research development manufacture and distribution of treatments. And vaccines like everything. The gates foundation funds. This was a public private partnership based around using charity to entice corporations to do the right thing by making it profitable. This was one of a number of programs geared at funding vaccine research but unlike most of those the accelerator was from the start focused on respecting the exclusive intellectual property claims that whoever won the vaccine race from a writer for the new republic it's explicit arguments that intellectual property rights won't present problems for meeting global demand or ensuring equitable access and that they must be protected even during the pandemic carry the enormous weight of gates his reputation as a wise beneficent and prophetic leader. As vaccine research preceded. A lot of people suggested that win one was developed. The recipe should basically be open source so that any country with the capacity could make it without paying to license it gates at fought against this kovacs which is the largest arm of his coat. Response organization proposed instead that poor countries should have vaccines donated to them by rich countries. Who would fund this vaccine sales and wealthier countries. It was hoped that this would back seen this night. All of them. This was to vaccinate about twenty percent of people in low to middle income countries after that those governments would have to bid and compete on the open market for access to vaccines so one side of this is saying the vaccine should be open source and equally available to everybody everywhere for his close to free as humanly possible and bill gates says what if instead we do it for money and we donate a twenty percent of the necessary vaccine. Still they'll never learn. They'll they'll never learn how to teach themselves to stay alive. Yes we make them work for it. Yeah it's a alive. Yeah yeah you have three gunshot wounds. Emt shows up and like bandages one of them and then says well. If i if. I handle the rest for you. You're never going to learn how to manage your own gunshot wound so i'm gonna if you can pay for the gos- like i'll let you fix yourself again. You take his big picture logic about healthcare and apply it to an actual health problem and it's immediately nonsense like it's just very clearly a bad idea but because you're talking about the big picture people think he's smarter now. Many people warned that his ideas were horrible and that by fighting against the idea of a vaccine he was essentially saying was fine for people to die to protect the concept of intellectual property. Men will martin a policy advisor for doctors without borders has since said that people in gates administration were central in pushing a global line. That quote is not an access barrier in vaccines of course the only reason to have. Ip is to make an access says that's all it is a hundred percent of ip is about reducing access. That's the only reason for it to exist zero ch- thing like obviously like like i'm not gonna. It's like zero reason for the kind of ip that he wants. Yeah like like and it's obviously it always winds up. It would be one of those things like. I don't know the people who invented the adventures and superman stuff got to make money off of their things instead of these gigantic syndicates using ip law to anyway where reading disney does like fuck. All of this shit is what. I'm saying like i believe in the ability of an artist to have control over their art. Obviously and for the record. I think that. If you're a i think for i think for example one of the things we as a society could do is when we have a global pandemic and an international team of heroic researchers creates vaccines in record time. Maybe we should make sure none of them ever have to worry about anything financial for the rest of their lives. Maybe that's the thing we could do as a planet. Yeah actual tony stark happened. Yeah we could manage to do anything good for those. It's because the people who did the amazing thing weren't tony stark's were teams of very dedicated. Researchers whose names most people will never know and also should know because they'll get assassinated by lunatics the star and there is no tony stark. Well tony stark is the one saying this thing. Other people invented should be profitable to a group of people separate from the people who invented and other. It's worth human death for this to be the way it works and again when it comes to ip if you're talking about like a novel or like mickey mouse or whatever right. We can argue about how bad it is culturally. But it's worth modest harm because again you're talking about mickey mouse when we're talking about vaccines you're literally talking about restricting who gets lifesaving medicine that ip protections are for vaccine is a restriction on whose life gets saved. James love is the founder and director of knowledge ecology international a think tank that studies the pharmaceutical industry and ip. He's been involved in global public health policy as long as bill gates and his analyzed his impact for quite a while he points out that at the start there was a fight between a pooling approach advised by groups like the. Who see tap which basically would have said we should who research any research done anywhere in the world should be available to all researchers working on this program. We should open source the entire process of research. The vaccine process all of the studies into its effect. All of this should be pulled together. We should pool knowledge. you may recognize. This is exactly the same thing. Computer nerds were doing in the nineteen seventies when bill gates wrote a letter at them. They were pooling their knowledge to improve a thing. Bill gates got really fucking angry and of course when this happened with a vaccine bill gates fought like a devil against it quote. Things could have gone either way says love but gates wanted exclusive rights maintained. He acted fast to stop the push for sharing. The knowledge needed to make the products. The know how the data the cell lines the tech transfer the transparency that is critically important in a dozen ways. The pooling approach represented by c. Tap is included all of that instead of backing those early discussions. He raced ahead and signaled support for business as usual intellectual property by announcing the act accelerator in march. And how did gates his public private partnership work one year later. His act accelerator has completely failed in its goal of providing discounted vaccines to the priority fifth of the world's poorest people the drug companies and wealthy nations that supported his plan have all made bilateral agreements that basically said fuck poor countries as peter. Houghton's dean of the national school of tropical medicine said the low and middle income countries are pretty much on their own. And there's just not much out there. Despite their best efforts the gates model in its into end its institutions are still industry dependent. Now the act accelerator is also technically part of the. Who but it is funded managed and staffed mostly by gates foundation people it has ensured that globally rich countries and respect for intellectual property had been prioritized human lives from new republic. Quote companies. partnering with kovacs are allowed to set their own tiered prices. They're subject to almost no transparency requirements into toothless contractual nods to equitable access. That have never been enforced. Crucially the companies retain exclusive rights to their intellectual property if they stray from their gates foundation lie on exclusive rights. There quickly brought to heel. When the director of oxford's jenner institute had funny ideas about placing the right states. Kovac supported vaccine candidate in the public domain gates intervened as reported by kaiser health news a few weeks later oxford urged on by the bill and melinda gates foundation reversed course signed an exclusive vaccine deal with astrazeneca that gave the pharmaceutical giant sole rights. To no no guarantee of low prices.

Yeah no anyway. It's probably not going to surprise anybody to learn that bill. Never got better at flirting. Despite being one of the wealthiest people to ever exist he did grow more successful at having sex largely because he was one of the wealthiest people to ever exist. His primary horning ground was microsoft and the gates foundation now earlier. We discussed how he met his wife while he was her boss. Well he met a lot of women in that way in the biblical way while he was hurt their boss in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Wendy goldman rome. Were wrote a book titled the microsoft file where she claimed gateshead frequent affairs with employees. She alleged he'd started dating a sales manager in their german office before he even started seeing. Melinda gates met this woman in a microsoft corporate meeting in monte carlo. He sent her an email after saying that seeing her energized him adding. I hope i didn't stare or anything gates cancelled his flight back to the. Us flirt with her. He sent her love letters. And the two embarked on a brief affair even though this woman was by her own admission uncomfortable sleeping with her boss while now we know this was a pattern for bill in two thousand six. He attended a presentation by a female microsoft employee. When he left the meeting he emailed the woman to ask her out to dinner. Writing if this makes you uncomfortable. Pretend it never happened but okay. Yeah i just don't understand. It is simply a power thing. Why do you need to do this. I don't know young. he's he's not. It's not it's not a weinstein thing. He's not doing that because we have not heard any evidence that he obviously there's a power imbalances discuss your avenue. It's not like he's not raping employees. I've never heard any allegations of that. Um and in this case he sent his letter saying like. Hey let's go to dinner. I'm mary billionaire. But if this makes you uncomfortable. Let's just pretend it never happened. And she did. She decided she was uncomfortable. She ignored the email and gates did not pursue her further. I haven't heard add allegations that he harmed her career in any way. I don't think he's doing that. Like i don't think he's immune allies in women who don't get with him that said i think it's pop. You could argue that like this woman in. Germany may have gotten with him because she was like. Maybe it'll hurt my career to not get with them right. Yeah yeah yeah. It doesn't matter as much as know. Yeah exactly a year or so. Later gates was on a business trip on behalf of the gates foundation. This is like two thousand seven hundred and eight. He was traveling with a female employee during a cocktail party. He whispered to her. I want to see you. will you have dinner with me. The woman says she felt uncomfortable and laughed to avoid responding from a write up in the new york times quote six current and former employees of microsoft the foundation and the firm that manages gates fortune said those incidents and others more recently created an uncomfortable workplace environment. Mr gates was known for making clumsy approaches to women in and out of the office. His behavior fueled widespread chatter among employees about his personal life. Some of the employees said that while they disapproved of mr gates as behavior they did not perceive it to be predatory. They said he did not pressure women to submit to his advances for the sake of their careers and he seemed to feel that he was giving the women's space to refuses advances. So again. I technically yes by. It's not a weinstein thing. But it's not okay right you can. You can not be as bad as harvey right weinstein industrial rapist and your behavior is still unacceptable because all like a a an a workplace is not a fucking nightclub if if bill gates had a history of hitting on women awkwardly and nightclubs. Whatever like yeah. Everyone has the right. Yeah be like three like. Hey you wanna fuck and then be told. No if you're not being you know yeah bad about it but this is a workplace. These are his employees. He runs the come. Yeah it's not okay. Yeah again. It's yeah so. He was also noted by his employees to be dismissive towards his wife. Melinda sometimes speaking to her during foundation meetings in ways that made employees cringe on its own. I don't know if all of this would have merited inclusion in an episode is packed. Is this one right compared to circumcise billion people in making an aids epidemic worse. It's not on that level but it all helps set the stage that leads us as all things eventually lead andrew liaoning in carly rae jepsen early. Jeter i mean he did say call me.

"bill gates" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"Killer of human beings across all time so good. Good thing to fight i would. I would agree. Yes sounds good. Yeah and bill certainly can't be faulted for a lack of ambition. Here he stayed in. His goal is the total elimination of malaria and scientists seem to suggest this as possible now. This is an ongoing struggle. I haven't found anything that suggests the gates foundation has been like ineffective in their struggle against malaria. They beat in. But that's pretty big pretty big task and it's probably fair to say that their advocacy and money has contributed to a lot of life saving programs and in the battle against one of mankind's deadliest foes the gates have also pledged to ten billion dollars over the next decade to provide free vaccines to the world's poor through its global alliance for vaccines and immunization or gabby. The foundation has vaccinated and impoverished countries against polio. And other horrible shit. Bill and melinda take some credit for the fact that between nineteen ninety and twenty twelve total deaths of children under five dropped from twelve point. Six million to six point six million. Now there's no way to evaluate how much of an impact they had on that But vaccinating kids absolutely saves lives. Here's the thing though. The whole story is not just the the core question should not just be this. Foundation's work save lives. Because that's not all we're talking about here And it's not as something you can answer that simply because the tens of billions of dollars in that foundation were able to come from gates and other plutocrats because they didn't pay that shit in taxes. It's wonderful to vaccinate kids but the foundation brings more than free medicine. It spreads a specific ideology about who should have wealth and about how problems ought to be solved in our society. I want to quote now from a book called the new prophets of capital which goes into some detail about what i find so unsettling at gates's ideology as bill gates his wryly noted. They are more interested in cures for baldness than cures for malaria. Why melinda gates argues that there is simply no rich world market for products like diarrhea or pneumonia vaccines. Their solution is to use the gates foundation to create such a market in poor countries if we could stimulate the pharmaceutical companies through public private partnerships to create vaccines if we could guarantee them a market of millions of children getting this vaccine and then being paid for it in the developing world if we could commit to a market and knew that those that men would be there we could incent them with the right research dollars to actually create those vaccines. That's bill now. Bill is above all else believer in the power of profit driven capitalism. He thinks the best way to do. Good is providing profit incentives for corporations to carry out behavior. That also helps suffering people but this still means that those profits are valued more in his world than those lives. When jonas salk invented the polio vaccine he was asked why he did not patent it and he said you might as well try to patent the sun to solve a man whose contribution to our species literally incalculable. The vaccine was not a commodity. It was health it was millions of human lives not cut short hundreds of thousands of cumulative years not lived in pain the gates foundation has done things that save lives but this is not a zero sum game. The question isn't free vaccine gates vaccines or not. It's do we let individual men accumulate the wealth necessary to operate foundations. Like this or do we build a world with less than equality. we're human beings. Don't need a profit motive to vaccinate starving children. Yeah and also like where you know. Philanthropy isn't at the of you know a handful of white dude exactly a hand and and that's that's kind of what we're building too. I assure you this becomes more than just an ideological argument. There's there's there's there's solid stuff to dig in here. But i want to quote again from that book. The new prophets of capital turning something into a commodity means it is no longer a right or even potentially a right. It means that the commodities value is now judged primarily on whether or not it will turn a profit and people's access to the commodity his upon their ability to pay for it in the united states where healthcare is a commodity the difference in life span between a poor black man and a wealthy white woman is fourteen years. We are forty six in the world for infant mortality despite being the wealthiest country on earth babies poor states like alabama are twice as likely to die as infants in wealthy areas. This is part of why virtually all public health. Experts agree that universal health care is a good idea but as nicole ash off writes quote when we framed the problem of poor people in the global south dying from preventable diseases as a market failure problem. We close off the possibility of building. A healthcare system in which healthcare is a right and does not depend on one's ability to pay. And that's what's so talk about the gates. Yeah it's the his his whole idea like yeah it's wonderful to get vaccines to poor people. The way he wants to do that is by creating a financial incentive to do that rather than by saying well we all have a responsibility even to people outside of our country and maybe looking at the covid nineteen pandemic we can say. Oh yeah actually we. All benefit in a purely selfish way for making a healthcare is available worldwide. Turns out we are all in this together and like as opposed to. Let's make it profitable to save children in two thousand fifteen the gates foundation funded a study in the lancet in that study it was about like public health options worldwide and study called for universal healthcare. Despite this in that year's development report the gates foundation claimed that universal healthcare has quote limitations as a global development goal and that evidence as to whether or not it helps. Health outcomes is mixed. Bill gates his on the side of intellectual property the right of corporations to profit max of leave from vaccines developed by scientists often using public money millions and foundation funds go to pharmaceutical companies. In fact shockingly large amounts of gates foundation money goes to big businesses and a lot of times as gift to those businesses for example in two thousand fourteen. The gates foundation announced an eleven million dollar grant to mastercard so that they could build a financial inclusion lab in kenya. The basic idea is kenya needs foreign investments but investing in africa is risky. So you have to bribe mastercard to take a chance on kenya and the that aid is not a loner investment. It was a gift. They were giving fucking mastercard. Eleven million dollars yeah. The gates foundation does a lot. They give multi-million dollar gifts to mega corporations like vodafone themselves pay no corporate tax in the uk. the gates foundation also gives gifts. The monsanto corporation. Who bill argue should be bribed to take over more and more responsibility for agriculture in africa. He there's all these articles were bill talking about like. How scary it is. The population of africa is set to and number one. There's some uncomfortable. Racial undertones this obsessive concern with the population of africa. He always firms. I'm just that there's not going to be enough food. They don't grow enough food to support themselves there but his his solution is. Let's pay monsanto to subsidize or pay. Monsanto subsidize seeds that they have to buy that are genetically modified so that they they can't share them right. It's this fucking thing capitalist. Been doing since the seventeen. Hundreds right the seventeen seventies a giant british corporation takes over most of north in eastern india and immediately are like all. These farming villages have arrangements with each other and like social welfare programs to take care of each other in the event of a drought or if like one one village harvest is bad. Let's get rid of all that because we want to centralize all of our farming to make it more profitable and then thirty million people starve to death. And it's the same basic you are. We're not going to go into this nearly enough but gates a lot of like he keeps talking about how his ideas to reform farming and africa so that it can feed more people none of which involve talking to people who've been farming in africa for generate. Yeah yeah because it's just like what was. Bring this mega cooperate. Let's make it profitable for monsanto. Like fucking fee only way right. It is just like that. That is how people like that view. The world solutions god grim..

"Was drinking last night unbelievable dedication. I think we started at around one and yesterday you text me being like what time are we starting and i said one you go. Jesus sophie. that's so early. I know i know this is. This is the dedication that i bring to my craft. Which is why andrew would consider thirty five dollars. I i've i'm on the other side of things. I started waking up super early. So well andrew drouin fantino yeah yeah t drizzle to people call you t. drizzle this shed i i think they actually have on fellow I heart podcast the daily. I feel like exactly the cash it i think. It's t drizzle is a good name so we're just roll forward with that. Yeah yeah andrew. Hey how you feel about bill gates so far. Have you learned anything new. I i feel like we have gotten. We haven't gotten as far as the bombshells so far. I'm feeling about the same as i did. When i walked in which is like it's yeah but not like seriously fuck fuck fuck that guy. Casual casual stoic. Fuck -bility i. I don't i don't think he's gotten past it again. It sounded like that was going to be a point of of potential debate. But i argue. He i don't think he is eclipsed any given billionaire any given tech billionaire in at this point. Yeah yeah so. Let's talk about what happens next. When we last left bill gates he just succeeded in burning tens of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of man hours fighting against a federal antitrust case. He won in the end as billionaires nearly always do but the whole process exhausted him emotionally. Microsoft's nasdaq value. Had been cut in half which destroyed about two hundred billion dollars in fake money held by rich assholes like gates. They made it all back of course because they didn't actually lose anything but it on paper. They had less of an impossible fortune for a while. Now one long term impact of the antitrust suit is that four all time bill gates will remain a convicted monopolised. The stink this put on him in microsoft lasted longer than the actual charges. By september of nineteen ninety-six atop a huge number of top executives had fled the company. This was the dot com boom in sexy new businesses. Were starting every day. A lot of opportunists figured as the antitrust case started spinning up that microsoft's stay in the sun was over and it was time to find the next big tech rift. Corey doctor will argue that. We ogle's existence in part to the trauma. Bill felt over the antitrust suit. Gateshead noted in the past that lingering fear of the federal government is what stopped him from doing the same thing to google that he'd done to netscape in two thousand nineteen. There was asked by cara swisher. Why microsoft hadn't bought android before google. This was just seven years after the antitrust action and he claims that it was he was scared of the dod jada risk it so again even though the the government doesn't win this case it is good to this thing because it stops people like bill gates fucking up as much things as i write it. Sounds like a of this was simply like a personal level. He was scared of the humiliation. He didn't want to do. Another deposition. antitrust case had more of an immediate impact on gates convinced convinced him to step down from his position as at the head of microsoft sort of in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Steve balmer had become president of microsoft taking over more of the day to day management of the company as bill gates began to pull back in two thousand gates step down. Ceo of microsoft embalmer bomber took his place. Bill was forty four at the time and he remained the chairman of the board and chief software architect at the time this was billed as a way for gates whose public image was of a genius programmer to spend his time exploring new technology. Two thousand would also mark the point at which gates increasingly got involved with the land therapy now before we get into the bill and melinda gates foundation. We should probably step back and cover some of the developments in bill's personal life during the late. Nineteen nineties sorta missed what we were talking about business stuff. Last episode. nineteen ninety-five was obviously a big year. For microsoft the company and for the tech industry as a whole but nineteen ninety-four wasn't even more momentous year for bills personal life on the positive side of things it's the year he married melinda french now about to be former wife time they started dating. Melinda was a microsoft employee a product manager. She started working there in nineteen eighty-seven the year after she graduated from college today. This kind of relationship sets off alarm bells for a lot of people but for decades. It was kind of framed in the media as pam and jim style office. Romance melinda both gave interviews over the years playing. How cute their beginnings were. He flirted her when they sat together at a conference. Which what is the chance. Bill did not arrange to sit next to her. We know this man. He added that happened his actual. Yeah later they act just happened to run into each other in a company parking lot again he absolutely engineered that and bill asked her out on a get on the date and for a long time. The story was they fell in. Love became a billionaire. Power couple the end reality was of course much grocer but talk about that later. Nineteen ninety-four was also a year of tragedy for the gates family. Bill had remained close with his parents. He moved microsoft back to seattle in part so he could be near them. He had his dad's legal firm represent the company and he and his parents maintained their tradition of sunday dinner. You bought a house near them to facilitate this ever since the late nineteen eighties when he got fuck you. Money bills. Mom had advised him to get into philanthropy and since bill had some control issues with his mother. This became a source of tension between them. She would press him to give away his fortune and he'd snap. I'm just trying to run my company. Mama gates eventually harangued her boy into raising money for the united way. This of course led other nonprofits to beg him for money and soon he was overwhelmed by the requests. He kept being too busy to deal with it and his mom kept pressuring him until she was diagnosed with some horrible fucking cancer. Even rich people can't escape and she died in nineteen ninety four bill senior was as devastated by this. As you'd expect and for a time he struggled to find ways to fill his days eventually. He asked his son and daughter-in-law if he could start going through their stack of requests for philanthropy and give some of their money away. This is claim claimed later. Interviews was kind of the start of the bill and melinda gates foundation and before the foundation itself existed. They kind of gave him like one hundred million dollars to hand out basically short like eighty bucks for them. You know And so yeah for for most of the late nineties. It's just kind of his dad handling the gates philanthropy but then bill quits being the secrecy of microsoft in two thousand and melinda and he start taking a more active role in philanthropy. The way this was generally framed in the media was bill gates leaves microsoft behind to save the world and there are a lot of articles even up to the present day with similar titles back. In february of this year there was an article titled bill gates has a plan to save the world in the economist. Which is like puffing up one of his books about climate change. There's been a bunch of pieces like that right right right. Yeah the bill and melinda gates foundation started officially in the year. Two thousand it began with. I think one hundred million dollars which was like the bill gates equivalent again like eighty bucks. The foundation expanded massively in two thousand six. When bill gates convinced warren buffett to give most of his fortune away to the organization. He claimed that he felt bill. And melinda could be trusted to use it for good. And if you just sort of watched by the sidelines that probably looked like a defensive point. A defensible point for most of the public crusade For mo- for years the most public receipt of the gates foundation was their war against malaria by two thousand eighteen. They almost four billion dollars towards fighting the deadly disease around the world in a mix of aid program struggling nations grants to researchers and scientists. All that stuff now. Malaria has probably killed more human beings than any other single cause in history. It's like the number one.

"Like ah the pointing out hypocrisy with those never works. Yeah no not ever they did. Yeah and felsenstein again. It's talk about kind of the the injustices of the world. Felsenstein is one of the most influential competing pioneers. You never heard of and the reason that gates his famous and felsenstein isn't has nothing to do with the fact that gates did more to revolutionize the world. It's not that he was like that much. More influential than felsenstein. It's because felsenstein was obsessed with pushing the boundaries of computing while gates was obsessed with pushing the boundaries of how much money computing could make right belsen steen later wrote the open letter quote delineated a rift between the actual industry where there's trying to make money and there's where those those hobbyists where we're trying to make things happen so this riff that opens that bill starts between making money and making computers better. Bill is not on the making computers. Better side right right right as anyone microsoft vista could tell you. Oh god i mean it's just the through line of like. He was a weird businessmen since he was a child. Is the i to me. Yeah i don't do this. This like weird again could could have given. This could've gone back in time and a nine year old bill gates blunt and like crimson album and been like. Just just get into weird merges. Say away from yeah yeah. Worshipping the devil worship the devil. Listen to prog rock take about you acid. It'll be fide. god. Or you'll become steve jobs. Actually so yeah you know. Same kind of the same same journey so lee. I'm going to read another quote from felsenstein here where he just kind of explaining why microsoft gets big and what that has to do with this. This homebrew computer culture that he hates quote. The industry needs the hobbyists and this was illustrated by what happened. Eventually when national semiconductor which made their own microprocessor chips in seventy seven or seventy eight decided they needed a basic operating system. They asked what's the most popular basic and the answer was microsoft basic because everybody had copied it and everybody was using it. So we made microsoft. The standard basic national semiconductor went to microsoft and bought a license. They were in business that way. This was the marketing function. And the hobbyists did the marketing. With a complete antipathy of the company and question there were other basics. And you know some of them might even have been better gates. His later. Success was in a certain measure because of what we did that he said we shouldn't do. We were thieves to do it at all. Like that's important is. Bill is arguing that like well. We can't be expected to do this for free. Otherwise you won't have innovation and it's like well the fact that people were share. Your program for free out is why you became a billionaire because when companies started realizing we need to pay for operating systems. What's the most popular one. Oh this one because everyone's been sharing it for free like yeah. It's the argument about piracy. Right it's the same thing is like people are able to share movies and music and stuff for free. It doesn't hurt. The industry will actually bring the more fans who will spend money on those things in other ways which i think was borne out by what happened like yeah well sort of inevitability of it right which is like like it or not. I mean it is just a better model for. I guess some stuff sitting here. I four a lot of things for every for most of things that are covered by intellectual property. Like yeah my boss. Part of why. I'm putting out my book for free like there will be a print version and stuff. I've got publisher but it's going to be available for free online. Is something my my boss. Jason pardon did back in the early two thousands. He published his book online for free. It became hugely popular. And when you have something for free that you know x number of people have consumed anyway. There will be a way to monetize it. Jason got made a lot of money off of that book eventually. Like it's if works out in the same thing with bill gates. Bill gates manage it load of money off of people using his ship for free. That's kind of how intellectual property actually works most of the time but bill gates is a dick so one of the people who spends the most time slamming bill gates in is the best it because he's right about literally. Everything is cory dr. Oh i fucking love corey. He's he's he's rat And i found a really good interview with him on jackson where he goes into more detail. And how gates went from quote another company making altair software into a giant of the industry and he makes a similar argument to felsenstein but he highlights microsoft's deal with ibm is more crucial. Quote gates gets his fortune because ibm had been subject to years of antitrust hell every year for twelve years. Ibm outspent the entire department of justice antitrust division fighting and antitrust claim finally under reagan. They were let off the hook so ibm had spent years tied to the bumper of the doj and one of the things. They knew that the doj really hated was monopolizing software by tying to hardware. So they made the pace. Pc and they made it out of commodity part so that it could be cloned. They sat back is phoenix computing reverse engineered their rahman and started selling it to dell and gateway compact so that there were compatible machines. And they said we're not going to make the operating system. And they went to bill gates and paul allen and ask them to make a dea dos that they could use their machines. The doj would leave them alone. So that's where gates a portion comes from. He was in the right place at the right time. In his mindset is idea of cutthroat competition of no sharing of no collegiality allowed him to leverage the weakness of ibm's own ip its ability to control its creeks and competitors and customers in the impose his own and so in other a bit of irony gates who spins a chunk of his life fighting one of the biggest antitrust cases in history. Maybe the biggest also is only able to get started because the doj goes after ibm from monopoly shit like because ibm has stopped for making monopoly. That's why they don't go in house to make their operating systems. New worried about antitrust shit which is why bill gates gets rich all of these things. He hates us. Oh life or the whole reason. He has money yeah right. It's the hypocrisy of it is like what can you do. I don't think they invented it. They're always going to think it was all them. Yeah again. this is why we need a we need like to dismantle all of our present federal law enforcement agencies and devote their resources to like hiring a bunch of middle aged in like early fifties sixties women and giving them tire irons and the ability to track people down and hit them in the face with tire irons when they start doing shit. That's clearly going to end in a bad place. You see a fifteen year old suing his partners in the computer club. It's like it's time for the latest him with them irons. Yeah smack them around a little bit. Maybe have may make another one of mountain climbing accident. I dunno so hypothetically hypothetically just the old ladies with tire irons no-nonsense division. They got after the. We work guy you know when he starts talking about being the world and air hit him with a fucking iron right in the face like fucking crack. That boys jaw. Just give it take. Take a thought. it could be worse than the current system. Yeah exactly now. Microsoft by nineteen eighty microsoft was enough of a real company. That bill was able to hire his buddies. Steve balmer to the non techie business managing stuff. That was necessary in a growing company. Bomber was employee number. Twenty four..

"Tapes around to each other for free now. This was critical in microsoft success because it spread adoption of their products but it enraged bill gates that people were getting software for free in nineteen seventy six. He pinned infamous. Open letter to computer hobbyists. He accused them of all stealing all of stealing his software and said that resellers who sold computers with his programs already on them. We're basically robbing them. The letter included the line hardware. Must be paid for but software is something to share. Who cares if the people who worked on it get paid is being very snotty about this now gates complained that the time he and allen spent to create their products was worth forty thousand dollars but that the royalties they received based on what they'd actually sold meant. They were just making about two dollars an hour. This was many will argue a short-sighted way of looking at things the sharon share like mindset of early software was a major driver of innovation at allowed different ideas about software to be merged and tested and provided early programmers with a greater base of knowledge to work from many of the brilliant minds behind the computer revolution. Guys like steve. Wozniak benefited hugely from the state of affairs. Like if someone who will say like that's why we have the computer systems that we have two days because in my day we were just able to share everything and was like like a punk side of this thing. He's a phone bringer. he's doing back in the day. You could like make certain signals over the phone that would get you free phone access and shit like he was all into that. Like fucking steve. Wozniak actually pretty fucking red. When he super rich off of apple he blew all of his money holding a bunch of giant concerts and stuff but he's bucking cool dude. Actually but bill did not so bill. You know a lot of again. Wozniak is one of those guys that you really can't argue. It was instrumental in the existence of personal computers as we know them today. You argue that about bill gates and he did not agree with guys like steve wozniak about intellectual property. He felt that intellectual property rights trumped human progress any day of the week. It didn't matter that sharing software was good for computing because it was bad for microsoft and so from that moment on gates dedicated himself to making sure. Ip was kept sacrosanct today intellectual property rights and paid software such pillars of the industry. That it can be hard to believe. This wasn't necessarily always going to be the case. One thing that made apple computer interesting nineteen seventy. Six was the fact that they're operating system apple basic was free and they openly claimed quote. Our philosophy is to provide software for our machines at free or minimal cost. Now there was significant fallout within the computing community over this open. Letter one hobbyist. Hal singer who published an influential newsletter complained that since bill gates had developed basic on a harvard university computer funded by the us government and the start of the microphone. The focused programs they make they make in heart before they drop out the harvard. Computer they make it on was paid for by darpa like the residence advanced research project agency and so how singer will say like well. He should never have been able to sell my place. It was developed using taxpayer funds. Which is true. This is a very defensible. Line of argument now. It does like bill gates is the thing. The of philosophy of his that has resonated doubt is tech is using public hinder public research public funded intellectual property public. Whatever thinking they own it at the not letting and then getting mad when you know like like taking taking from the common good and pretending they invented it. Yeah yeah it's fucking it's fucking read you know. What else is read. Andrew habit the products and services that support. Yeah that's right every time. Yeah thank you. Thank you christmas night.

People who knew gates and allen at the time riposted his estimate that he and his colleagues had put forty thousand dollars into designing their software right. That's a big part of his argument on this open letters much money. It costs us to make this. We have to be able to make it back. Can't afford to do this. One member of the homebrew computer club.

You never pay that much for the computer time. And i think that research will show that they were using someone else's computer time someone else was paying for that. It could have been honeywell. Where paul allen was working so we all knew this to be a spurious argument so back in the day you had to pay and a lot of cases for access to a writer right and one of the things bill gets in trouble with when he's a kid he and his friends get kicked out of one of the places because they're hacking the system to get free computer time. They're using computer time at stanford they're almost certainly using paul allen's companies freak like they're doing a lot of things they would call stealing right. Yeah yeah but it's also.

"bill gates" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"Now. The fight made it clear to his father and mother that things were getting out of control so they took him to a therapist bill later recalls telling them. I'm telling the therapist. I'm at war with my parents over. Who is in control. The therapists told his mom and dad that their son was going to eventually win his struggle for independence so the best bet was to let him have his freedom now and see how he handled it. So that's what they did. They took him out of his old school and enrolled him in a private school lakeside. prep And the idea was that this school would give him more freedom and that that would resolve his baby girl problems. I don't know the extent to which resolved is behavioral issues. Because i think he kept being addict but he he absolutely loved the school and it was. It's it's what made him going to specific. School is what made him into the man that he became. And i. it's here. I should probably note that people have studied in this series. Bill gates is absolutely the luckiest. I think he might have the most privileged upbringing i have ever encountered and that includes like fucking kings like right in terms of like the time he was born at the time he was raised. The resources family had like the not only but it's also like not only. Did they have money not only grow up in a time when like opportunity. Exploding in this country not only parents upper class but they were thoughtful and understanding in excess of the norm for his era. They were willing to give him flames. That exactly. that was very few people are so. Just comprehensively the luckiest man. I've ever heard the also looked into a good therapist. Which people who have tried to find therapists can say is not a common thing especially finding a therapist. Answer to behavioral problems is going to be. He's gotta let your kid do shit. you know. it's all good. It's a good approach. Yeah the it's all good approach. And then he lucked into lakeside. Prep which not only was like a a lot of rich kids. Go to fancy schools lakeside. Prep was not just a fancy school. It was a school with a computer. Now bill started when he was thirteen in nineteen sixty eight. An era for which ninety nine percent of the term computer meant either. Some shit nasa uses or like saifi nonsense bradley less than one percent of one percent of thirteen year old boys had meaningful access to computers in this time period and bill gates was one of them. Let's app just staggeringly fortunate like at that time. The the other the other possible meeting or access to computers literally a human being who computes now like a guy with an abacus so the reason that bill school had a computer is that when he was in eighth grade. The mothers club at lakeside. Held a rummage sale and they used the profits from it to by teletype model thirty three. As are terminal And they also rented a block of time on a general electric computer so bill gets access to this machine because the moms club at his school is forward thinking enough to be like. We should probably get a computer. So these kids can that seems like it might be the future And bill is immediately obsessed with machine. He starts programming. He starts creating new like languages and shit and he was so good at actually and this is another ridiculous stroke of luck. He was so good at programming that his school said he no longer had to go to math class so he could spend more time on. My god had a goal. Wrigley the luckiest boy who ever lived. Also it's like at the time. Was that even like a thing that made sense like i mean no luck in i mean again you were a smart person and you were someone who look forward thinking because writers a lotta people eaters. We're gonna be. The future will be good to have done a little bit of high school math. I guess yeah. I mean i assume he was ahead of it like they were also does good enough in math. He's not gonna it's fine. Yeah now when. I say there are no self made billionaires shit like this is why because there's no way that bill gates becomes the multi-billionaire is today if he doesn't have both this and this is not walk like leaving out exploitation and stuff. There's no way he becomes a billionaire if he doesn't have the privilege and wild fortunate to have access to this computer and like a lot of most rich kids did not have this opportunity. Bill benefited at an early age. Not just from wealth and social privilege but from a wonderfully supportive community of moms who had the foresight to buy a computer for their kids to use in school that was progressive enough to let him like spend his class time. Learning to program and bill blossomed with all this additional freedom. his dad later recalled bill realized quote. Hey i don't have to prove my position relative to my parents. I just have to figure out what i'm doing. Relative to the world and build a side of the thing he really wanted to do was get good at computers. His first computer program was a tic tac toe game. He programmed that let users play against the computer. He was not the only kid obsessed with the computer to other boys. Paul allen and kint fell in love with this machine. paul. Allen is the microsoft founder. He died not too long. i think. Yeah oh man it is crazy just like you and your buddy from high school becoming billionaires together. Yeah because some moms sell junk in by a computer. Yeah it's one of those tic-tac-toe things like your mom's in one thousand nine hundred sixties rummage sale and then the big domino is a million die of the corona virus because vaccine access locked out. I mean i went to kind of a hippy. High school so the only equivalent to that would be if we had been able to be the all the humans on earth with access to weed fourteen of changed shit. If your school like he doesn't have to go to math class. He's against smoking man. If only they'd given bill gates we'd instead of a computer he just would have been really into grand funk railroad and we could have solved avoided a lot of problems. But you know what is in grand funk railroad andrew the products and services that support this podcast one of which is grand funk railroad. Our primary podcast on.

"What are you reading bill. Volume encyclopedia tire encyclopedia. God i guess. I have to say if you catch your small child. Young the encyclopedia from beginning to end. You gotta like you gotta put some poison in his food or something you gotta you gotta slow down. He's not going anywhere good. Yeah give him get him on drugs you know just give auditor get him to start. Have him start drinking. That does explain encarta. Yeah it doesn't just chilling encarta. It's it's it's. It's a shame that after the encyclopedia giving him so much joy as a child he went on to commit such a crime against encyclopedia. Kind of isn't so his parents liked that he was a a big reader and they would reward his hunger for knowledge by offering to buy him any book he wanted. It should not be a surprise that he grew up super nerdy and was bullied from an early age for being small and weird and obsessed with books. Which you know say i was. I was the kid who always have like a book underneath the table in like math class. I got in a lot of trouble for that. Yeah i i was definitely a little bit of that by a also just like. That's not just why he was. He just is such unpleasant we. Yeah i think he was probably a real real dick Just judging by everything that comes later because it wasn't just the books. Yeah so obviously. Getting bullied caused him to withdraw further into his own. Little world This started to worry his parents. His dad attempted to counter this by making young bill. Workers agreed or at their parties. And this a waiter at professional functions for his locker exhausting family. I mean a family that has parties that requires a greeter. Yeah that's wild shit hole. Yuck again this whole family. Could you get him get him to start drinking. you know. yeah they have a problem. You know that's the thing family clearly does not have enough problems. They're really out there high society. They need more. Problems is what i'm saying. Holy faulk okay. Yeah you know. This is good as i feel like this child. Who's gonna possibly could have feel exonerating. It's a racing. I mean we'll get to that in a bit but it is amazing that like it really gives you an insight because his dad comes across very reasonable in interviews like just an extremely reasonable man. But then you realize like okay. Your kid was getting beat up in school so your solution was to make him be a waiter to richly. Thought that okay. So you you. You didn't really have everything together either when you were like. That's a weird move. What a horrible solution. Yeah oh my god okay. Yeah okay now. Most interviews will say the by age eleven when it came to like intellect. Bill was more or less an adult. We're not talking about maturity here but his ability to discuss international affairs and business and like generally he was. He was a very smart kid. He was by the time he was eleven or twelve. Not really acting like a kid anymore. his dad later recalled quote. It was interesting. And i thought it was great. Now i will say to you. His mother did not appreciate it. It bothered her and she was bothered. Because bills intellect made him elegant and led to clashes with his parents. And i'm going to quote from the wall street journal here the sun against his mother's instinct to control him sparking a battle of wills all those things that she had expected of him a cleanroom being at the dinner table on time not biting his pencils suddenly turned a source of a big source of friction. The two fell into explosive arguments. He was nasty. His sister says of her brother. Mr gates senior played the role of peacemaker. He'd sort of break them apart and calm. Things down says the eldest sibling. The battles reached a climax at dinner one night when bill gates was around twelve over the table. He shouted at his mother in what today. He describes as utter total sarcastic. Smart ass kid rudeness. His father responded by throwing cold glass of water at his son's face to which his son responded sarcastically. Thanks for the shower. This doesn't sound fun. What a tool unbelievable tool really young sheldon lives billion. Fuck fuck you child. Bill gates and i mean again. This is why more children need to drink Yeah yeah slow him down. We got slow down generation. What is it after. Z z one. Eventually it's going to be simply generation final generation final. Thank god after z. Is there a after z. I don't think. I don't think it's happened yet. But like what. The bill gates story informs us is that somewhere out. There is a kid who could become the future. Bill gates if somebody doesn't put a steel reserve in his hand fast. Yeah like boone's farm. Kids love boone's far giving some boone. His get rich. I'm going to start a charity. That just distributes boone's farm to precocious children just brings sparks back Sparks is good for kids. Yeah that's how basically guy kids. It's an energy drink will make dumber now The throwing water in his son's face story is a story. You'll find a lot written articles about bill particularly in the early two thousands now. This is the period. We're talking about like how what led to this day but the early two thousands was when bill started stepping away from microsoft and into philanthropy. And so there were suddenly a rush of articles like because he had been. I know people don't really know this. We're gonna be talking about why. I think people who weren't sokoto during the nineties. He was like the demon to the devil to a lot of people in the nineties and then throughout the arts. He got really rehabilitated. His image debt because he went from like the evil overlord of the mega corporation. That was ryan everything up to like the guy curing malaria. Basically it is true because because it is a little hard to remember how pervasive microsoft yep like literally. Yeah unless you are a very unpleasant bill gates type could have a computer without. Yeah it was on it. Yeah yeah it was. It was a different era of technology. And so this for whatever reason when. This of articles came out kind of burnishing bills reputation in the early two thousand. This story wound up on them a lot and they tended to portray this moment his dad throwing water in his face as like a turning point for young bill gates where he realized. Oh i'm being an asshole and where it is like when everything kinda like turned around for him and his family I've run across other articles that were written in a similar time period and were less of like shameless plugs. Yeah and these articles make it clear that his behavioral problems went deeper than that and there was not a clean break when they stopped as as gates and his family to portray. I found a washington post article that noted bill spent so much time in his room during his adolescence that his mom would buzz him on the house intercom to ask what he would do. It was doing and he would shout back and thinking. Have you ever tried thinking so again. He's he's a real. He's a real asshole about being sorry. Yeah my mom would a slap the shit out of me. If i'd say it's not that that's good but like i would have gotten. The ships left out for saying.

Chinese State Media Indicates China Is NOT Banning Crypto Trading

"What's going on guys. It is thursday. June third and today we are talking about why chinese state media is indicating that china has not in fact. Banned crypto. i however let's start with a quick update on ransomware. Since i dropped that episode. Yesterday i've had numerous people. Send me articles and media accounts blaming the ransomware epidemic. On bitcoin or crypto in general. Npr called it the oxygen behind the surge so unfortunately my very easy prediction of ransomware. Being next bitcoin seems coming to pass. But i also wanted to share an interesting take. I saw from a couple of folks that was really well put by andy edstrom author of why bitcoin he tweeted bill gates becomes multi-billionaire by shipping insecure software. Us government pays hackers for zero day exploits and keeps them instead of telling software companies to patch them. Equifax loses one hundred million plus identities in stock all time high. What will solve this other than ransomware. Basically the idea that. I think that indies going for is that ransomware is the natural market byproduct of insecure software by the same token however it creates the financial incentive for that software to be in a world of ransomware. The cost of buying or building insecure software. Go way up. Which presumably give the advantage to less explainable software. Yesterday we also talked about the impact that ensures playing this potentially making companies more willing to pay ransoms because they know they'll be covered however insurance companies seem to be making moves so that might not be the case or at least it won't be that easy.

That are involved. That happened there. And i get the feeling that if she wants to make any changes to what this foundation does. It's going to involve a lot of time in planning but i really think this is one of those stories where it is. Certainly something personal. I'm sorry that it happened. But i also look at this as something that really could affect a lot of things when i think about philanthropy when i think about public policy and how that's by these dollars that's coming in this is potentially something really big.

Parents were often involved in philanthropy and community work. His mother. Mary is a firm believer of the idea of that. Too much is given much is expected. She instilled this belief in her children. His parents upbringing played a big role in bill gates. Philanthropic works today. bill gates is colorblind. He never completed his harvard degree. But he has been conferred. Many honorary degrees bill gates held the forbes title of the richest person in the world for nineteen years between nineteen ninety five and twenty seventeen speaking at a ted talk in two thousand fifteen during the bullet. Bill gates predicted that the next event that would cause millions of deaths would not be a nuclear war but a global pandemic since we have invested a lot in the research of nuclear weapons and how to stop them and nuclear war might not kill millions of people however after analyzing the way the world dealt with ebola. He realized that we don't have a proper system to counter a pandemic he also explained that we were lucky that he bullet couldn't spread by air. And by the time it became contagious. People were already bedridden. so it didn't spread rapidly however if the virus could spread through the air like the spanish flu of nineteen eighteen. We wouldn't be able to respond to it. Therefore he warned the world is not prepared for the next pandemic bill gates had never divulged his iq but the fact that he scored fifteen ninety out of sixteen hundred in the sat exam. Nineteen seventy-three means that he has an iq of roughly one hundred fifty one point four five. He scored ninety nine point three eight percent in that exam thus he is extremely smart on one side. He is a geek in very good programmer but on the other side on like his other silicon valley counterparts. He is also a hardcore high risk taking businessman driven by future for side of the market. This combination made it possible for him to see what is competitors could not at a time where everyone was focusing on selling software. Bill gates was focusing on setting standards.

"While retaining its copyright now that they started making money by writing software. Bill quit college and along with allen founded microsoft in nineteen seventy five microsoft started becoming famous and writing programs for other companies. Few years later they made ibm an operating system called dos. An operating system is an interface that lets the user communicate with the computers hardware even if the user doesn't no machine language the only language known to computers hardware once ibm purchase. Dos from microsoft. Other companies also came to microsoft and purchase dos thus dos became the standard operating system. At that time dos however only had a command line interface and no graphical interface to work with. There was no concept of a mouse. Users used a keyboard to type in commands. That opened her edited files. Once dos became famous apple came to microsoft and asked them to create excel word and version of basic for their macintosh computers. When bill gates went to apple to demonstrate these software he noticed a graphical user interface of macintosh which was driven by a mouse. It was more user friendly than dos. Bill gates immediately realized that microsoft would be or advocated if it didn't create a graphical user interface of its own so bill gates announced that microsoft was working on an operating system with a graphical user interface similar to macintosh's graphical user interface. He called this new operating system windows. Due to bill gates announcement dos users. Waited for windows rather than purchasing macintosh computers to experience. The new graphical user interface when microsoft eventually launched windows it was slow and cumbersome but the second version of windows was much better however it was similar to macintosh's graphical user interface so apple sued windows for stealing its graphics however the case was decided in favor of microsoft then the nineteen nineties. A company called netscape launched an internet browser called navigator. It became quickly famous because of its graphical interface and the ability of independent developers to add additional functionalities as plug ins this made. Many users believe that netscape navigator had the potential to replace windows so to keep its ship from sinking. Microsoft launched a campaign to destroy navigator. I it launched. Its own browser. Called internet explorer by purchasing an old version of code written by netscape's founders. Then it pressurized computer makers to install internet explorer in their computers instead of navigator as a result netscape's business was destroyed and internet. Explorer started to become famous but scape was not the only company that suffered at microsoft's hands many other companies including ibm intel and apple suffered because of microsoft microsoft's use of its monopoly in.

Bill and alan developed a traffic program. That was extremely useful so they sold it to the government and made twenty thousand dollars now. They realized how lucrative programming could be so they wanted to quit school and start a software company. How ever bills parents did not permit him to quit school instead. They forced him to join harvard to study law. Two years after bill joined harvard. Allen showed bill and advertisement showing new microcomputer called alter eighty eight hundred those days. The most common computers were mainframe computers which occupied an entire room. The personal computers that we use today were so small. In comparison to these mainframe computers so when they were invented personal. Computers were named microcomputers bill and allen modified an existing programming language called basic. That runs only on mainframe computers so that it could run on microcomputers. Then they sold it to the company selling alter eighty eight hundred for three thousand dollars while retaining its copyright now that they started making money by writing software. Bill quit college and along with allen founded microsoft in nineteen seventy five microsoft started becoming famous and writing programs for other companies.

"See it. However alan bill hadn't actually written any code. They just wanted to see if the company would be interested in purchasing a version of basic for microcomputers. So when the president of its asked to see the code they started working day and night to write the code but they didn't have an altar eighty eight hundred to test their code on hence they simulated it on other computers in harvard's computer lab. Bill started working very hard to finish the code. He would code the entire day in harvard's computer lab sleep at the computer. Wake up the next day and pick up programming at the exact place where he left off the previous day for working several days like this. They developed a newer version of basic. However they still did not know if it would work on alter but despite their doubts about their new software. Allen flew to albuquerque and new mexico to show it commits to his surprise when he tested on an altar. Eighty eight hundred. The software worked perfectly so they sold it to midst for three thousand dollars while retaining. Its copyright now. Alan and bill knew that programming for microcomputers had a bright future. So alan persuaded bill to drop out of college together. They moved to albuquerque and established microsoft in nineteen seventy five the name which was the short form of microcomputer software initially had a hyphen between micro and soft but the hyphen was removed later mitts. The company allen and bill wrote code for was soon acquired by a bigger company but that did not stop at and bill from writing software. They continued writing software for other startups. Like apple tandy corporation and commodore in nineteen seventy nine. They moved to seattle soon. Microsoft started to become famous for its computer software. So ibm the largest computer maker at that. Time came knocking microsoft's stores. They wanted to know if bill had an operating system that they could use for their first microcomputer the ibm pc. An operating system acts is an interface between the user and the computers hardware by managing both the hardware and the software. It lets the user communicate with the computer even if he or. She doesn't know the computers language when ibm asked bill if he had an operating system for their microcomputer. Bill immediately answered that he had one. But the truth is he didn't have any functioning operating system so he quickly bought an operating system from another person in seattle for fifty thousand dollars. Then he developed it into ms dos. Which stands for disk operating system using dos users could navigate open and edit files on their computer through a command line. Instead of a graphical user interface like windows microsoft then sold dos to ibm microsoft however retained the right to license. The software to other companies after all writing software costs time effort and money and bill gates. That people should pay to use the software then till then customers either rode their own software or the software came pre installed with the hardware so ibm thought people would only pay for the hardware and never pay for the software. Therefore they didn't have a problem with microsoft selling ms dos to other companies however just like bill had anticipated other companies like compaq also purchased. Ms dos like ibm. They decided that purchasing an existing operating system like ms dos would be cheaper than creating their own operating system so ms dos became the standard operating system for the computers of that era as a result. Microsoft sales rose from seven point. Five million dollars in nineteen eighty two sixteen million dollars in nineteen eighty-one thus by nineteen eighty-one microsoft had become a familiar name across the usa. If not the entire world however two years later when the company was making huge profits allen the man who played a vital role in microsoft's formation and success left the company. But why would he leave the company when it was making so much profit after all the things he had done to make it grow then. Nineteen eighty-two allen was diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma a type of uncommon cancer that develops in the lymphatic system thus naturally his productivity in the company reduced but bill got frustrated at his lack of productivity so bill and his new lieutenant plotted to reduce allen's ownership stake in the company doing stock options to themselves and other shareholders however fortunately allen overheard them talk so disheartened. He left microsoft year later. After alan left the company microsoft became a multinational company establishing offices in great britain and japan by nineteen eighty-three almost thirty percent of all computers in the world. Were running it software. Then the late nineteen seventies when microsoft was slowly rising to fame. Bill gates met steve jobs. Just like bill gates steve. Jobs was also a young man with high aspirations just one year. After bill and allen founded microsoft stephen. His friend was founded apple. The meeting between these two young men would later become a historical incident that hastened the course at which the world was advancing. How did the meeting between these. Two young men changed the field of personal computers. And how did it affect the world. Find out in the next episode of our biography.

William henry gates three was born in seattle washington on october. Twenty eighth nineteen fifty five. His father william henry gates to was a successful lawyer. Has mother mary. Maxwell was a teacher together. They had three children william and his two sisters since his name was william henry gates three. His grandmother nicknamed him trae which meant three. There is a tradition that originated in the middle ages which is called letter swapping probably because hard consonants are easier to pronounce than soft ones. The first letter of name is often replaced by another letter. Thus a person named will was often nicknamed bill. For instance king william. The third of england was often referred to as king billy by his subjects in the seventeenth century. For the same reason. Bill became the short form. Of william and bill gates became the short form of william. Henry gets thus william henry gates three came to be known as bill gates. Interestingly his father had the same nickname to as a kid bill gates favourite games monopoly and risk. Which is a game where the goal is world domination since childhood. Bill has had a habit of reading business magazines once while reading such a magazine when he was in middle school he had a dream. That dream was to open a company. It was a big dream for a small child but a dream that he would later realize when he was a child. Bill displayed disruptive behavior. He started questioning his parents decisions. He did not think that their rules were logical and at times refused to follow them. This often led to conflict between him and his parents moreover he had some fixed ideas about certain things. He didn't like it when people confronted him about them. Once mary bill gates mother had trouble getting him to the dinner table so she asked him what he was doing but gates. Suddenly annoyed shot back at her. Saying i'm thinking mother. Have you ever thinking so alarmed at gates behavior. His parents took him to a psychologist when he was twelve years old. The psychologist advised gates not to challenge his parents decisions as he wouldn't prove anything at the same time he advised gates parents to give gates more freedom and free will. Bill took the advice of the psychologist and gradually stopped questioning. his parents. decisions besides helping bills parents. The psychologists advice helped bill to because as he stopped questioning his parents. They became more supportive of his interest in programming to bill gates. First exposure to computers came when he was studying at the lakeside school in seattle and those days. The computer was a very costly gadget. A moderate price for a computer at that time was one million dollars. It was not something that many schools could afford. But fortunately for bill a local company had purchased a computer the mothers club at his school. Purchase time slots to use the computer much like we pay money to use a computer for an hour in an internet cafe. Thanks to them. Bill got the opportunity to use a computer for the very first time. The primitive machine caught his attention immediately and he was enthralled by the possibilities offered he was just thirteen years at that time and was in eighth grade. Bill gates took an interest in programming. The computer so he joined hands with paul gardner allen who was two years his senior but had similar interests as him together. They started skipping classes and working in the schools computer room instead. Sometimes the school was even supportive of bill gates letting him skip math classes to pursue his interest. Bill gates wrote is first program on this computer which enabled users to play tic tac toe. Which is the game of crosses and circles in a three by three grid against the computer. When the mothers club ran out of money the school couldn't afford any more time slots on the computer. So bill alan and their friends started using the microcomputers in the computer center corporation. They soon found out bugs in the system and started exploiting it to use the computers free of cost when the company eventually found out. They offered to find bugs in the system in exchange for computer time when the company agreed to their proposal. They went to the company's office there. They started learning programming languages. Like fortran and machine language in which the company source code was written when he was fourteen years old. Bill and alan wrote a computer program the computerize the school's computers scheduling system. Since allen was already in college they wrote the program so that bill was the only boy in a class of girls three years later they wrote another program called traff. oh data that measured the traffic flow in seattle. The program was highly in demand so they sold it to the local government and made twenty thousand dollars now. Bill and alan realized the vast untapped potential that programming hat so they wanted to quit school and start a company. Even though bill and alan wanted to start a company immediately bills. Parents did not let him do it. They wanted bill to finish high school and go to college hoping that he would become a lawyer. So bill sat for the sat. A standardized test used for college admissions in the usa. Being the brilliant student he is. Bill scored fifteen ninety of sixteen hundred in it and secured admission to harvard so in the fall of nineteen seventy-three despite his love for programming bill entered harvard as a pre-law major due to his father's influence in his own words he was only there in body but not in spirit so he spent the first few months playing poker and video games instead of attending classes however all that changed two years later when allen showed bill january nineteen seventy five issue of a magazine called popular electronics. The magazine had featured a microcomputer called alter eighty eight hundred. It was the first commercially successful. Microcomputer the personal computer that we use today were called microcomputers back then because they were so small. Compared to the common mainframe computers of that era upon seeing it bill allen sensed an opportunity to make money by programming so they called mitts the company that manufactured alter eighty eight hundred. They told it's president that they had written version of basic for alter eighty eight hundred basic stands for beginners. All purpose symbolic instruction code. It is a family of general purpose. High level programming languages designed in nineteen sixty four and the nineteen sixties. Computers were big mainframe machines that occupied an entire room. They overheated often and hence needed powerful air conditioning systems to keep them from overheating. Computer operators gave instructions to these computers through punch cards so every new computer application required writing a new piece of software therefore only mathematicians and scientists learn to code but basic was more user friendly and easy to learn this motivated computer hobbyists even from fields other than science and mathematics to learn to code as a result. The scope of computers expanded rapidly. However until nineteen seventy five basic was only used in big mainframe computers and not in microcomputers therefore when allen and bill told the president of mets that they had written a version of basic for alter eighty eight hundred. They captured his interest so he told them that he would like to.

"bill gates" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition

"Who gates welcome back to the daily social distancing. Show good to see you you lost. Join us on the show. I would say it was about seven months ago and seven months ago. Just like dr fauci. You said you will worried because you felt like the worst was yet to come a lot of people accused you of peddling fear and terror and now it appears that unfortunately you were correct. Here's my question to you. Why does it seem like we've become worse at handling the pandemic you know in europe in the us then we were seven months ago when seven months ago. It was so bad. Well there's a couple of things working against us. I is that with the winter when we're colder we. The virus multiplies more and more indoors. More so that is not a good thing and then there's a certain fatigue. Some of the things people have had to do in terms of staying away from friends. That's tougher i've to say this round. It looks like europe is getting better compliance with the restrictions than the. Us is so they're starting to see a downturn. When you talk about that compliance and when you talk about the downturn is part of the downturn like should we should we be looking at the virus cases or should we be looking at the deaths because i never know which one is more important than usual. Be like a million more people to me. Five million seven million and then you'll see some doctors saying yes but fewer people are dying from because we know how to treat it. How should we be looking at this virus and the fight that we have against. It's well the case is our leading indicator it is true that <hes> cases are translating into less doubts for two reasons. One is that the cases are more in the young people <hes>. Who are less likely to be very sick. And the other is that the quality of treatment including some new drugs like decks method have been proven out so when you do get hospitalized you have a higher chance of survival but were predicted to go back to over two thousand deaths a day in the months ahead so for the next six to eight months news is mostly bad after that the volume of the vaccine will have kicked in and then we'll have a light at the end of the tunnel. Wow i mean the the question is then i think for a lot of people is like. How long tunnel. How bad does that tunnel get. And how do we stop it from being the worst possible tunnel one of the big things. A lot of people are worried about is going to be the transition between joe biden. donald trump. You know you've worked with governments all over the world working on their vaccine distribution working on healthcare around the planet. You know how important it is for one administration to talk to the next when it comes to <hes>. Handing off on their plans. How much do you think this will actually affect america's response if if there isn't a transition well it's unfortunate that the current administration got tied into a positive narrative that you know we're turning the corner <hes>. And that you now have this transition will make. The message is a little less clear. You know this is when you'd love to see the best. Cdc people on tv reminding us about social distancing and masks. You know particularly when there is that fatigue out there so leaders at all level. This is a chance to step up even on politicians. You know encouraging friends that hey we. We don't want this additional several hundred thousand deaths you know it'd be adjective. A person who dies know when the vaccine is absolutely on the way and so i think the good news should drive compliance not lacks laxity as somebody who's done work globally around healthcare for so long especially around infectious diseases. What have you found is the key to encouraging or convincing community members to buy into the measures that keep them safe where we had vaccine resistance with polio and they're getting the religious leaders to speak out have them a visibly vaccinating their own children for would like we'd never stopped polio in africa and yet now it's just been certified that we've gone three years without wild polio so activating the trust hierarchy and getting rid of the conspiracy political element to it and just reminding people you know in this case. It's about saving lives in that case it's about kids not being paralyzed people back to that. Very human impact. If we don't behave well. I think it will often come through. It's interesting that you bring up conspiracies because the conspiracy theories about you online have are insane on social media and social media has propagates them in a way where it's like bill gates is trying to create vaccines so that he can cook troll your minds and he wants to vaccinate. Everybody can implant change. People's dna is what they said. You're going to change our dna. So that i don't know we turn into something and then we work for you somewhere. I don't know the full story. I'm still learning it when you see these things first of all. Have you been able to track down where it comes from. And secondly have you. Even i know you think about these things you want to like the biggest thing because i hadn't even thought about like the motivation behind it because i'm always trying to figure out who benefits from a conspiracy theory and i'd love to know if you've put any thought to this at all because of how many people won't get a vaccine because they truly believe conspiracy theories yeah usually when you work on infectious disease like dr fauci and high do your your kind of obscure in a nobody talks about t be or or malaria so here we have this complete turnaround where vaccines and are they. Good for people are now front and center. And there's always been a small group of anti vaccination people and we see this with you know measles vaccine. They've now got a platform and they've sort of joined forces with some political and spiracy abuse and it's so easy to click on particularly when a simple explanation for this pandemic that there is somebody evil behind it. You know as somehow easier than you know the true biology which is actually kind of complicated so we have to make the truth more interesting. And you know we've got a label things with the truth and sadly the naievety about how to make social media work. Well is pretty strong. And that's coincided with the election and the epidemic. I wish i had the answer. But you know it's it's it's out there in big big numbers and hasn't it just keeps growing so when we look at the vaccine. Now i mean that's now the story you know. Now the world is waiting for the vaccine because the vaccine becomes the key that unlocks the doors. You say the lights at the end of the tunnel. The question then is how do people get the vaccine. How effective will the distribution method be and how difficult is will the vaccine short supply. The good news is that there's four other vaccines that are likely to get approved fairly quickly as well. The fact that pfizer worked so well makes us optimistic. That astrazeneca johnson and johnson vacs which those are much cheaper easier to scale and don't require that cold chain so we'll have a lot of scenes and we need to prioritize people. At risk elder people people working nursing homes and each country <hes>. Will have to decide okay. Who goes first. That's still a little bit confused in the us but hopefully we'll get that straightened out very very soon because the vaccine is likely to be shipped a lot in the month of december as you said anti vaccine community has only grown over time. I think the us is now the biggest hub of anti vexes in the world it started as a fringe thing with measles now with corona it is fully fledged and because of politics it's been amplified so now you'll have some people who on the liberal side saying i don't trust that vaccine it was made under trump and then you'll have other people saying like i don't trust that vaccine that came from joe biden and the and the democrats trying to brainwash. It's a lot of people may not want to take the vaccine which may now go against everything we've worked toward. So how do you begin convincing people that the vaccine is safe like in the midst of this political crisis. Well it's clear that the fda through the professional staff. They're all the things that are supposed to do likewise pfizer. There's even an external committee that will weigh in just to make absolutely sure that the the political desire to get this quickly did not in fact the efficacy and safety review and i feel very confident because the people involved are are really doing their job. Well we don't need everyone to take the vaccine. Society will have to decide if there's some jobs like going to a nursing home in taking care of somebody's grandparents whether that person you know how strongly you encourage them to have a vaccine so they're not spreading seeing but with this level of efficacy if we can get to seventy five percent dosed then you'll block the spread of the disease with measles you'd have to get to like ninety five percent because it's even more infectious but the good news here is that we just need that maturity and i think as people see people taking the vaccine and they see that <hes>. The side effects of any are very very rare. That confidence will build and that will be good for society because when you take the vaccine you're helping to protect other people.

"So I was wrong with my twenty because I remember hearing Ao. Oh. You're saying he was like well, twenty people died because of the testing it's probably like thousands or way more than irreversible injuries which is fucked up to me and one posted jest. He is facing trial in India Bill Gates, but he is accused of out ruling tetanus vaccination in Kenya that includes abortion drugs in a video on the website of the new American magazine. FACEBOOK page continues with the theme of the Mass depopulation via vaccinations abortions also linked to Bill Gates. As China He has supposedly he's in cahoots with the Chinese Communist Party, which if you go back and you see, yeah, it's you know what I mean so it is. been shared six thou- six, thousand, five, hundred times and viewed over two hundred million times. This video accusing Bill Gates of a microchip people. As now the another video gained nearly two millions of people are paying attention. And all the Americans. So you homeboys, there's probably he's not a good library. PERCENT OF REPUBLICANS BELIEVE? That Bill Gates US covert nineteen vaccination. Vaccine to microchips another skin but that. Blows. My mind is that he's all the shit like. Yes I joke about having goes babies and all that shit.

Tom. Just. That's my views and the fact that like I get it if people can accept having an abortion and that's what they choose to do you shouldn't feel shame about that but if you're going to be forced to do it, that's wrong.
