Fresh update on "gates" discussed on Techmeme Ride Home

"They really were the original mosaic 6 that went out to found netscape with Mark andreessen and Jim Clark. These were literal corn fed midwesterners. Fresh out of college 22, 23, 24. And so as Alex toxic told me in the book and I'm quoting him, we were working around the clock because that's what you used to do before. Four years later, 5 years later, the entire valley would be living the same lifestyle. But those people actually have lives. We really didn't have any lives outside of the office. So of course we are going to be at the office all the time. I mean, I had no furniture. Why should I ever go home? And Lu montulli, who some of you might know, said the press just take what they think is interesting, juicy and fascinating out of their limited time and they publicize that, especially post netscape in 98 99. Every startup was trying to do the things that they read about in the magazines that they read about us. I would catch four or 5 hours of sleep at the office, wake up, do another 20, go home, blah, blah, blah, blah. But I wouldn't recommend doing that for your average startup. Unfortunately, a lot of startup people think that that's the way it should be done because of all the publicity that we had. Another point that I make in the book is that netscape was the Big Bang because the rockstar entrepreneur universe that we live in, if you were around in the 80s and the early 90s, that wasn't a thing. Kids grew up to want to be rockstars and sports heroes, and maybe if you were super ambitious, you went to Wall Street, but the idea that you would start a company that was not in the zeitgeist. And the fact that netscape had this famous IPO in 1995 that made I actually remember clearly it made the nightly news and things like that. The idea that there was a new company that there was a company that had been around for 18 months that had no profits that was worth $2 billion on the day of its IPO. I have interviewed Wall Street people. It blew their minds at the time too. So I devote the entire first chapter to telling the netscape story because of some of the things the groundwork that it laid for this era that we've been living in ever since, essentially the last 25 years. Back to their sort of work hard play hard culture. The other thing that netscape did and this is obvious when you state it, but think of how conceptually what a leap this was. These were the first guys to have a product where you would distribute it on the Internet. Like literally before them, you would still put software in boxes, shrink wrap it and put it on a shelf. So this concept of doing versions that you get feedback from your users and you do put out a dot, whatever release, two weeks later, another release. So one of the reasons obviously that we now live in this 24/7 product cycle is because they were the first people to jump on that sort of a distribution mechanism as a way to do software products. But also because like everyone else at the time, this is 1995. They were out racing Bill Gates. And so another thing that I was surprised when I did the research because again, you know, most of my career was spent in the aughts and God bless them, no offense, Microsoft, but they've been in a sort of lost decade in the 2000s. It was a surprising reminder to me how much everything in the 90s, what everyone was doing was in relation to what Microsoft might do or try to Googlers have told me on the Internet history podcast when bad words finally took off and were making buttloads of money. It was a thing, don't tell anybody. Don't let the word get out until we're far enough along that Gates can't catch us, essentially. So that was surprising to me how much in the first few chapters Microsoft constantly comes up. I go into in depth how Bill Gates got Internet religion. I talked to much of Microsoft people. It was really very much a generational thing. It was the guys at Microsoft in their late 20s and early 30s who had used the Internet in college. Not that Bill Gates hadn't, in fact, he and Paul Allen had, when they were writing their first software products, were using because they were opposite sides of the country, so they were FTP back together. It was more generational in the sense that a guy like Gates, born in 55, baby boomer, as much as he was, he loved computers, he really didn't believe that computers were mainstream enough if you guys remember things like web TV and stuff like that that they did. And if you remember a term like the information superhighway, which people think, well, that was the Internet, no, they had a vision that they were going to deliver. Once broadband became ubiquitous, which Gates figured would happen after the year 2000, which he was a 100% right. Then they would deliver this curated Microsoft safe for the masses interconnected computing product. Via the TV because the TV was the one thing. It wasn't until 1998 or 99. Don't quote me on that. That computers penetrated 50% of U.S. households. So again, if you're Bill Gates in 94 95, you're not worried about the Internet because it's not going to ever be mainstream. It's not good enough because it's not broadband. You can't do movies and things like that. The thing that he missed was that it was good enough. And people were excited about it. And we're willing to put up with it takes two minutes to download a jpeg or something like that. So I want to give credit to the people like Brad silverberg and slivka. I can't remember his first name. The younger guys that had to do sort of the generational push to the older people at Microsoft to say like, this is really happening, and we got to jump on board. Another reason that I did this book is, you know, I still dabble in a little bit of angel investing and things like that. And when I meet with young people, young founders, 26, 27, and they say, oh, you remember the dot com. You were there for the dot com here. What was that like? Or what I've done episodes on AOL when I get emails and tweets saying, thank you. I never really understood what AOL's business model even was. Which I get if the Internet's just always been in the ether. AOL was always pejoratively called the training wheels for the Internet. But I argue in the book,.

What a Disappointment Rep. Peter Meijer Turned Out to Be

"Couple summers ago and turning point action was starting a series of super Saturdays, turning point action did a series of door knocking, campaigns across America, organized by the great Tyler Boyer and the whole turning point action team separate from the educational ventures of turning point USA. So I remember I was in Chicago and I drove to Grand Rapids, Michigan. That's not an easy drive for those of you that have done it throughout the night because the next morning we are starting our door knocking for a certain candidate in western Michigan. I got up very early and rally the troops and told everybody that in western Michigan, we need to put our forces together to go get a certain person elected by the name of Peter Meyer. Now mind you, I don't know why we endorsed Peter Meyer largely because I thought it was a flip district or something like that, a way to kind of gain ground. But what an incredible disappointment and let down. Peter Meyer in western Michigan has become. He has become a camera seeking attention grabbing self righteous congressman who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump was like one of the first things he did right out of the gate. He sprints to try to go on cable television at every single corner imaginable. And he's someone I have very little respect for. And he's got to go and he's got to go right now. And there is a great candidate running

Bill Gates says crypto and NFTs are a sham

"Bill Gates says NFTs and crypto are 100% based on the greater fool theory. Now, generally, I see more. Are you familiar with the greater fool theory? The greater what theory? The greater fool theory. No. The greater fool theory is that no matter what you pay for something, there will be a greater fool around who will pay more for it. I've seen that in action in the last couple of weeks having it. Yeah, we have. We know. Actually, it's a true theory. Bill Gates believes in it. That's why I think I said, can we get a Montage someday of how many times I told people not to buy crypto on the show? It goes back at least 5 years. And what did I say? Don't buy what you don't understand. So unless you can sit down and explain to me how blockchain currency replaces a reserve currency, don't buy it. But in any event and non fungible tokens, that to me with the tulip bulb thing. If you study the history of economics, Arthur Brooks, westbury, they all begin with the tulip bulb thing.

Why Have We Decided to END American Prosperity?

"Probably in a state of frustration. When it comes to our economy, worry, anxiety, totally understandable I share a lot of those concerns. But there's also a sense of confusion. Because when I travel and I talk to the American grassroots about what's happening in America, the consensus I receive is Charlie why are we doing this to ourselves? Why does it seem as if this entire destruction of the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world the most wealthy nation ever to exist? The most generous, benevolent, charitable, entrepreneurial, productive nation, has decided to stop being those things. Why are we deciding to end the prosperity? Why are we making a conscious series of decisions? To go a different direction. We're going to talk about gas prices. We're going to talk about inflation, but we're going to weave all of the news of the day into a strategy that used to be considered to be a military strategy as to how and why. Our republic is slipping out of our grasp. The best explanation could be a metaphor called the 5th column. The 5th column describes ancient warfare strategies. When ancient armies used to go invade a city or go to war, they would have four columns in the battlefield for columns of soldiers, a two by two formation. But the most wise generals and the ones that were more like most likely to win in warfare were ones that had a 5th column that was not seen on the battlefield. The 5th column wouldn't be the four by four, the 5th column consisted of spies, infiltrators, defectors within the city gates of the city they were trying to infiltrate and invade. You see

Can You Trust Fox News and National Review?

"Hey there folks I continue my conversation with John as zamira Z M I are a kz. Please sure you have it right. John, you were just talking about something horrifying. Please continue. Talk about whether you can trust Fox News or national review or these other institutions that we used to wait a minute. And national review, they both gone squishy on the same exact issues. You can always count on them to be 10° over to the right from the radical left. So if the radical left wants prison camps to kill 10 million Americans, I think Fox News and national review will come out and say no, we should only be 5. They're running if the left is jumping off a cliff. NASA review on Fox News will be sliding off the cliff. The point is they don't make principle take principled stance. They don't help us stop moving in the wrong direction. They just don't want to slow it down and do it in a nice orderly way. The point I want to make about Fox News, well, there's a lot, but basically two days ago I was flying home from San Diego from actually from Los Angeles where I'd been speaking and at our gate at LAX airport, delta has a gigantic balloon rainbow. And when I mean gigantic, it was absolutely gigantic. And I thought to myself, this is where we are that you have Delta Air Lines, celebrating Pride Month. Now, why? Let's think about why are they doing this? Partially they're doing this at a pure fear. All they know is we don't want to get in trouble. We want to go with the flow. We want to go, and I say, in my upcoming book, a letter to the American church, I only mentioned it, but it has to be said, Germans in the 30s, when they put out the swastika, they didn't know what that would come to represent.

What's Durham's Next Move? Just the News' John Solomon Weighs In

"Watching the Russia gate stuff with sussman and all of that. Where do you think Durham's next move? What do you think is next moves are going to be? Listen, he's got to get ready for the danchenko trial, which is the primary source of Christopher Steele used to build his dossier, which is the second leg of the dirty trick right. There were two legs of it. There was the alpha bank. Sussman's trial allowed us to see just how dirty and false and fake that was. The danchenko Audrey was going to show us just how bad the Steele dossier was. The media still holds Christopher Steele in regard when people see just how bad the dossier and its underpinnings were. They're going to realize in the media. They were used to perpetrate this document when it was full of maloney. And the FBI sustained an investigation for two and a half years based on complete bogus rumors. That's going to be the primary focus. There is one other bucket left that they're working on. There was a lot of grand jury activity a few months ago. Not as much now. And that is focused on FBI agents. Who were involved in providing information that was fed into the fisa warrants that allowed the FBI to spy on the Trump campaign and Carter page and people like that. That fisa warned, we know now had significant factual errors in it. And significant omissions that are required by the FBI when they find exculpatory evidence. There is a large number of people. One of those agents was admitted on the stand during the assessment. Oh, I'm under investigation as part of that. We don't know if there'll be more criminal charges. There was a lot of grand jury activity suggesting there would be charges a few months ago. We haven't seen that materialized, but what the FBI know and how it may have misled the Congress and the fisa courts is the other leg of the investigation. And then when those two things are resolved whenever we can find out there's going to be no more criminal cases involving that. There should be a final report that lays out just how bad this country was misled by the Hillary Clinton dirty trick that the FBI facilitated.

Cheryl Chumley on the Evil Forces Trying to Bring Down America

"Hey folks talking to Cheryl chumlee author of the new book lockdown, the socialist plan to take away your freedom to Sheryl, I was just saying that, you know, when I think of Nazi Germany, I know that there's real evil in the world, but the idea that there are people you mentioned Klaus Schwab and others who would be so dedicated to bringing down America. What do you suppose it is whether in someone like that or the people that collaborated with him, whether it's Fauci or the Democratic Party. What do you think it is that gives them such a fully formed hatred of America and a plan to want to bring it down? Well, in many of these people's minds, they think they're actually bringing about a good, right? Because evil doesn't always come in this form of violence where it's easy to name it's easy to see, right? A lot of times it comes. It looks 99% good and it's just that 1% that twists on the truth that is actually the evil part. And in the end, it doesn't matter. So if you look at Anthony Fauci, if you look at cloud Schwab, Bill Gates, for instance, perhaps they truly believe that what they're doing with this great reset. What they have in mind for the new America is something that will actually be good in the end. But that doesn't take away from the fact that when you're dealing with the seizure of God given liberties, that that is an evil to those who live in America and are born, you know, into a country where individual rights are supposed to be cherished and upheld. So evil comes in many forms, but I just think that the left saw at this particular time in American history that all the ducks were in a row. We have a feckless president in The White House who's able to be influenced and steamrolled over pretty much everything that should stand for America. And more importantly, we have a nation that has turned away from God.

"Well, David, we have an embarrassment of riches today as far as topics go. I've got this list here. We can go through for an hour, but let's see where we're at. Let's start with Pennsylvania Senate race. David McCormick is a mirror 987 votes behind Doctor Oz and they are still counting. What do you think's going on there? Man, $64,000 question. It's possible that when all the votes are counted and the mcclernand will be on top, even if he's not, and I'd rather be awes of I had to choose at this point. I'd always really rather be the guy in front. Even if I've holds them off, there's going to be a recount because it's going to be triggered under state law. The candidate that's losing at the end of regulation can forgo the recount and just decide to lose. I just don't think that's going to happen here. Of course, the real news here is that the McCormick campaign is suing in state court to compel all 67 counties to count mail in ballots that were received on time and have no other flaw except for there is no gate handwritten on the outside of the envelope as required by state law. Now, they're using a you're the lawyer here, but they're using a decision rendered by the third circuit on Friday that have nothing to do with this election, but at 2021 election at Lehigh county Pennsylvania.

I feel like they're worse than they were ten years ago to be completely honest. I think obviously the election of nation's first black president was a watershed moment that even many Republicans conservatives, this is a sign of progress for us as a nation. I mean, during the Obama presidency, there were issues that came up famously when the president said that the police in Boston were stupid. Yeah, I did stupidly or foolishly arresting professor Henry Louis Gates. That was an issue, his comments around Trevor Martin were an issue for conservatives. And then obviously with the election of president Trump, that through the question of race and racism, I mean, into overdrive. So then the left was saying that the things that the president said, whether it's about people from certain countries or about immigration and building a wall, those things were racist. So I feel like we teetered back and forth and now at a time where we should, in theory, before the down the road on race, I think it's even worse because one of the things that's happened is that this current president President Biden and left racialized issues that previously had not been

"gates" Discussed on Secular Buddhism

"So the idea here with emptiness is that we see the thing and we give it meaning. This thing, all these things that come together, make this thing, and this thing we call this or that. We ascribe meaning to things. So I've talked about the car analogy many, many times. I want to bring up another perspective or another analogy here. And that's the teaching of the 84,000 gates. So what are the 84,000 gates? Well, there's a story in several Buddhist traditions that say the Buddha taught that there were 84,000 gates or 84,000 methods that lead to awakening. And I believe the 84,000 gates is intended to be a method or an expression to imply that there are numerous methods to learn about the nature of reality. I don't believe it's meant to be interpreted as an exact number. In other words, here are the 84,000 methods and then you can describe all of them, but there's not 84,001. I don't believe that to be the case. For me, this is just an expression again that was meant to imply hey there are numerous ways to arrive at the same place. And the irony here is that my interpretation of this is merely one of many interpretations of this teaching, which only strengthens the idea that there are many ways to see the same thing, right? I may see this and say, oh, well, what that means is there are a lot of ways. Someone else may see this teaching and say, no, it means there are exactly 84,000 ways, not one more, not one less. So I'm reminded of a poem or a quote by Rick fields, where he says 84,000 gates to the Dharma, and mine is best. What a waste. Do your practice, enjoy your life, and let the world argue and discuss itself to death..

"Link to join our community where we do weekly Zoom calls and there's a study group book club as well. In the last two episodes, I shared my thoughts around the teaching of signless and aimlessness. These are two of the three doors of liberation, the teaching of the three doors of liberation, specifically refers to signless Ness, aimlessness, and emptiness, so today I want to conclude my thoughts on that third door, the teaching of emptiness, but specifically how it pertains to meaning and the meaning that we assign to things, and for me this can be summed up in the teaching of the 84,000 gates. A quick recap, so the three doors of liberation are emptiness, and aimlessness. Starting with aimlessness, this is having no goal, this can be summed up in the expression, having no destination I am never lost. And that's the one or two podcast episodes ago. I talked about aimlessness, and then signless, again, this is the reminder that the outer appearance of things, in other words their sign can mislead us to thinking that this thing that you see is permanent, the example given is that a cloud looks like a cloud, but if you look at a cloud long enough, the cloud becomes rain, rain can become the water that is absorbed by plants, plants become the thing that get eaten by animals, and so on. So this thing that you see isn't always what it is, it becomes other things. In other words, a cloud doesn't die it transforms into something else. The form changes, but nothing is ever lost. And when we realized signless Ness, then we no longer feel attached to the temporary form that we're looking at in that moment. And again, there's an expression that the Buddha is supposed supposedly the Buddha said, where there is a sign, there is deception. And I like that because it's a reminder that change is a constant and permanence is the nature of reality.

The W.H.O. and a Fire Alarm for American Sovereignty

"Now the immediate significance of all this outside of just kind of a rather enjoyable monologue that I'm making right now, at least I'm enjoying it about how beautiful the U.S. Constitution is right now, the beginning stages of the erosion of individual sovereignty and state sovereignty and national sovereignty is going to be put in jeopardy. The World Health Organization, the highly corrupt World Health Organization. Is going to be meeting in Geneva Switzerland in the coming days post Davos to make official the complete elimination of American based sovereignty. America has the ability to make their own health decisions as it is today. But this proposed declaration from the World Health Organization would basically remove all sovereignty from the American citizens and put them in the hands of international. Unelected, World Health Organization, bureaucrats. Bill Gates, for example, contributes much of the WHO budget. This would completely put into jeopardy.

Yeah, Devin and I, she thought it would be fun to have Devin and I, the Russia gate guys on for the day before the Russia gate trial. Yeah. So I want to get into that. You have a new book out called the plot against the king. It's a book, right? It's a children's book. Oh, this will drive crazy. So basically what we thought was, yeah, it's called the plot against the king. And look, we said it in medieval times, and we thought they're shoving critical race theory down our children's throats and don't use. Why don't we educate our children about the truth? Yes. And the biggest story of our generation, Charlie, is the Russia gate hoax. And no one's teaching our kids about it. So we had this idea to say, let's set it in medieval times. We'll have a king named Donald. We'll have Hillary Clinton. The maga king. The maga king. He played right into it. I mean, we could set it up any better. We've got Hillary Clinton and the shifty night. And of course, the night of the round table, Devin. And it's our question. It's our quest for truth and the simple issue is, why shouldn't we educate our children on what actually happened in Russia gate? It's for anyone foreign up and honestly, adults should get up. But we don't know all of it yet. We don't know all of it, but that's why we can write a part too. Oh, there'll be a sequel. So it's called, it's called plot against the king.

"They will get and what kind of reception can we give foreigners. If we've never been a foreigner. I just think it's this love that is asking. Elvas here requires a lot of empathy and for me empathy sometimes. Can i put myself in that person's shoes. If i've never been in that situation i may maybe not as capable of loving or empathizing. You've probably heard the concept of the ugly american at some have suggested. American said the only people no matter where they go in the world. Everyone else is a stranger. They don't feel like the stranger themselves. Look at all these foreign people here. At least people stand it. I probably had a little of that mentality myself. When i was nineteen and made my first trip to europe and i remember i was in germany and i came to a door and these stupid people didn't know about doorknobs. You know. I just couldn't believe that there's no doorknobs on these stories this. He's funny latches in. And i definitely had in my mind the idea you know these are inferior people and how they construct their homes etc until the day that i had to arm loads of groceries with me as i approached the door. And guess what. I stuck an elbow out. Drop the latch and got in no problem with doorknobs. You'd have to put the groceries down. Open the door. Take him up and carry them. Through and suddenly i realized these strangers of diminished mentality may have a much better idea than i had and that was my first glimpse of being a foreigner as an inferior as somebody that you know. Maybe my ideas are not the best began to chip away at that idea of of american superiority that at least a somehow carried when i was a teenager i headed over so the stranger is the person that doesn't have that kind of mentality. The person that feels out of place at the person that knows that they are not at the top of the food chain in that particular area and this is the stranger. This is what god is talking about here. And so we'll talk a little bit more about how to fly that but first let's go to read it if we think about talent. Fair are instances where we could say that we have experienced being a stranger. What comes to my mind is changing job or.

"Not even the gentiles do the same be perfect therefore as your heavenly father is perfect so here that the perfect is to be understood in its context. Be like god and how you treat people. Don't treat them as enemies even if they are you. Treat them the way. God treats them and this is what we see in deuteronomy ten that god expresses himself. I am carrying for the fatherless for the orphans for the stranger. And i invite you to do the same. Let's look at verse. Nineteen again of deuteronomy chapter ten. Because this is sort of the touchstone of this particular lesson shall love the stranger for you were strangers in the land of egypt. All right so here. Israel is invited to love the stranger and as the ultimate words for love here. It's not like stranger. It's love stranger. Why because you were strangers in the land of egypt now did any of you look up this hebrew word for stranger the gear. If you did feel free to share what you learned what i found. Was that the stranger. The gear is anyone who alone or was family. Leaves his village or tribe because of war. Famine epidemic blood guilt to seek shelter elsewhere. So in short form the strangers. Anyone who leaves their village your tribe to seek shelter elsewhere. A place where their rights are curtailed in their opportunities are limited so the stranger is a person is a fish out of water the strangers of person who has lost their home sometimes lost their family certainly lost their village and their tribe. It's a person who's out there on their own. that's the stranger and god invites them to care for the stranger because they were strangers in the land of egypt. Would you read genesis fifteen thirteen. We looked at that in the previous lesson. And i think that's pertinent again here..

"Is god meeting people where they are in taking them a step further as nebuchadnezzar said i've come to realize you're the most tigard as a big step for nebuchadnezzar and is a big step for israel centuries before terry. I've never really thought about this before. But i have a question about this sprays. You're talking god of gods. I understand that people worshipped many other things believing that they were gods but they weren't. I mean they're not real gods. Could this be looked at by giving that some sort of legitimacy win a piece of wood that they're bowing down to is simply that a piece of wood and not really anything. I guess this would fit into what we sometimes say. God's taking risks. He apparently did not feel at that moment. That if he presented themselves in the fullness of monotheism that the people would have rejected keep in mind mono schism in terms of records outside the bible first appeared in egypt shortly after the time of the exodus is a pharaoh named Who declared that. There's only one god and that's the sun and he so to speak reformed egyptian religion which had had many gods and said no there is only one that reform lasted only his lifetime only a few years. As soon as he died the people went back to their old religion so monotheism was no easy sell by the way you may not know cannot son which you know his son. His son was too uncommon. The famous king tut who was one of the least of all the pharaohs but it was only famous to us because that was the only burial chamber we found intact and you have all the glorious things in there that they used to put in these tombs so there was an attempt at raw monotheism in egypt around the time of the exodus that was thoroughly rejected by the ancients so god was moving the people i think one step at a time as they were able to handle it. Let's read verses eighteen. Nineteen who executes justice for the orphan and the widow and who loves the strangers providing them with food and clothing. You shall also love the stranger for you or strangers in the land of egypt. Or i'd say here. We see the concept of no partiality meaning to favor the cause of the fatherless the widow and the foreigner and israelites with to remember the foreigner because they had been foreigners in egypt. We will come back to that but first three two. We have only in chapter nine. Read the evidence that the people west worshiping other gods save ago car from moses mountain so they would just being reminded. I think i know what a night but i can do all. They can do at an awful lot more. So why bother with a dan. Can you tell us what form of love is the words that have been used here as we learned earlier there several warriors that were used. Can you tell us exactly which one was used here in which i particularly log your neighbor. This is verse eighteen unless daniel already has that answer. I can switch over to my computer.

"It's one way that hebrews identified the important spiritual concepts by seeing the patterns of language and at a deeper level the creation the flood story and the exodus are all described in the same basic language. Have a stormy sea. You have a dividing the waters. You have mentioned dry. Land etc does a pattern in the words chosen that indicate that this consistency in god's actions between creation the flood story and the exodus. Yeah mersal ecksteen once again. Circumcise your hearts. Circumcision was an outward sign of their relationship to god but here it makes it clear that circumcision only a symbol. It's a metaphor of what has to happen to their hearts that sin has produced in us that which would separate us from god and god invites us to strip away anything that would prevent genuine heart renewal to god. We see here. Tremendous graciousness of god that tremendous forgiveness of got and it reminded me of a time when i was at a funeral and the end of the funeral. There was a chance for everybody to get acquainted. Eat together a little bit and i was seated across the table from a young man who when he found out what i was doing in life announced he was an atheist and so we had an interesting conversation on that together for quite a while and then he said something that i've never forgotten. He says you know. Says i just thought of something. I think you're gonna like this. It wasn't too long ago where i was just sort of wondering what if there is a god. What if i'm totally wrong completely messed us up. What then and he says what. I realized that that point is if there is a god. He must be very gracious. Because i'm still here. That stuck in my mind. I've never forgotten that that truly it is the case every one of us realizes that we have done things that we are very much ashamed of things that we wish could erase from our memories and flew memories of everybody.

"Check and see if in fact the knows. The interior is safeguarded from alteration. You can alter the outer surface. But you can alter the inner surface so that's a way of safeguarding. The wording of the covenant to make sure it isn't messed up and perhaps putting the arc in such stowed away place. I visited made copies or the people to study in sun. But hiding it away that means that in the case of any doubt they can always be produced in the exact wording can be compared with the popular version. Bobby joel i'm thinking of how in current history didn't we just have something in the news about several hundred ethiopians being slaughtered as they protected the sacred ark there's some kind of sacred ark that is kept in some house of worship in ethiopia that they religiously safeguard in care for and then we have in muslim traditions. The kaaba where it's being kept so carefully and see aches will take their holy book in it's wrapped in many layers of fabric and kept and there's a one that they dust away dust and flies or whatever kept so sake. I think that this idea of the box basically emphasizes the reverence of those objects the sacredness of the objects. And that's why they're kept in that kind of locality. But i think the bigger point is not just. There's this box what moses says. And they're still there even now they're still there. He concludes that verse with and they are there now. So the permanence or the ability of to rely with confidence on the fact that this covenant with god is still in effect is that these are being safeguarded and they are still there even to this day. So there's permanents consistency in all god is doing with all right. Thank you very much. Let's go onto verses six through eight. The israelites journeyed from bear off. Bene- j. akin to area there. Aaron died and there. He was buried his son liaise or succeeded him as priest from there they journey to good there and from good goethe to jot a land with flowing streams at that time the lord set apart the tribe of levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the lord to stand before the lord to minister to him and to bless in his name to this day. We do have some fascinating terms here. And i think the most interesting piece of this is about the tribe of levi because of you remember the history levi was one of the two tribes simeon levi. That had done. The most dastardly deed. In all the history of the patriarchs when simeon and levi betrayed a covenant that jacob made with the town of him and murdered all the men in that town and they were cursed for this but the tribe of levi regained its standing when they were the ones that stood up for god at the time of bell pay or and so the tribe of levi at that point was appointed to be depressed so the most despised tribe became the most honored tribe. And perhaps that's another way. The stories of the bible show god's intention for his people that in some ways the human race is the lowest race in the universe because of sin but that god has plans to exalt his people as kings and priests in around the universe and that is pretty exciting stuff. So here levi is set. Aside and moses mentions that in passing. let's go onto verse nine..

"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..

"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.

"gates" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"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.

"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.

"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.

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.

"This week we've been talking with Bill Gates copy of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is trying to eradicate polio and malaria globally gates created a billion dollar climate investment fund. . He has funded multiple factories to find a vaccine for Covid nineteen and the foundation is matchmaking companies around the world to get that vaccine distributed. . Gate. . Doesn't the position to do all of this because he's one of the world's richest people because he co-founded Microsoft and to be honest that's a little weird. . So in part three here I asked Bill Gates how his philanthropy ends up doing. . So much of the work of government he said some of it is mission creep take malaria. . When we started out, , we mostly thought that we would just increase the arm de because. . You know for malaria, , the people who die which at that time was over a million children a year they don't have enough money to have a voice in the marketplace. . So there was no. . Science, , or willingness to fund on their behalf in a capitalistic system. . And there was a little bit of foreign aid but much. . So we came in, , is the the biggest player in Malaria Ding. . At first, , I thought our role would just be to create the drugs and the nats. . And that we weren't mean to fund the actual delivery side. . Because once we have the tools. . The uptake would be there in fact, it , turned out that. . It was much harder to. . Have things delivered than we expected. . So we were CO founder the Global Fund. . Goes after three diseases HIV to Berkeley similar, , and we were a founder of this Kavi organization that buys vaccines for the poor countries at the very lowest prices, , and so those two institutions which we did in our first two years of existence to learn about delivery so far actually they've probably been the most impactful thing we've done. . The R. D. promises to give us some amazing things including the tools that will help ascent malaria and. . Make incredible progress on issues but the delivery side I underestimated how hard it was and how we would have to partner up to figure out what kind of axiom would be acceptable. What . kind of medical intervention you know even how do you tell people that they really need to sleep under that bed net and that feeds back to the design of the product? ? Because you're a partner in the delivering, , you see what's not working and we thought we could get women to take a daily pill. . For, , HIV prevention. . And the uptake on that very very low, , and so now we're working on something that you'd only have to take either a shot or a pill every ninety days because it looks like that would get uptake, , but you're driven by the limitations of of uptake, , and so that's why we've got to be deeply involved not just in rnd, , but also the delivery side at what point do your priorities, , the priorities of the foundation end up becoming the priorities for the world, , and you've described a sort of a series of unintended consequences that pull you in deeper and deeper to. . Ultimately, , the work of governments in no case should countries depend on our philanthropy or any other philanthropy to solve a basic need? ? We can accelerate the RND and so yes, , by spending money on malaria supposed to. . Some. . Fancy. . Vacation or something. . Yes. . The world's resources are going more into malaria now than they did before and those million deaths are now down four, , hundred thousand and so yes our values to change what gets funded in this economy and malaria just. . was in my view grossly underfunded. . You said it was either like it could be either malaria or a luxury. Good. . . But there's like a lot in between there and do you ever think maybe I. . Should Turn My Lens on disinformation or wealth inequality or racism in the United States. . Well we spend. . We have two big things. . We do one of inequity in the US, , which is lot about education, , and then there's global health I do believe you really have to focus and become expert. . We're basically saving a life for less than a thousand dollars per life saved. . These miraculous interventions in other fields. . People have brackets interventions through the giving pledge. . Make sure lots of plant perceived these high impact things some problems. . Government's spending way more than plant. . Can haven't been able to solve. . So mostly flat becomes up with pilots pilots. . Of a mentoring program pilots of. . How schools could organize a bit differently. . So we do a Lotta that but once we've committed to Milorad occasion we're not going to abandon that. . Sadly, , there's very few fields where you can save millions of lives for small sums of money. .

"gates" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season

"My name is Never Emma concept designer in film forks on production such as Avatar and star Trek Piranha. Three D Recently Green Lantern Super AIDS and just wrapped up with Scott's previous talking to you from Scifi Talk. Today I've compiled a few interviews from the round tables of the last two comic cons I attended and I have. Josh Gates is the new season on the sci-fi Channel With as Investigative Program Destination Truth starting this July tent. You know they investigate. Paranormal legendary creatures and mythologies are all explored from all around the world. Let's go now to the roundtables with Josh Gates. Who ACTUALLY CORRECTS ME? On the right season they are beginning to shop. The very first part of season five any new places on the. Yeah you know we The show is really obviously travel show at art and so every year we traveled to new and hopefully places and this year we just got back from three months overseas so we spent a little time in Central America where Belise Guatemala Sweden We spent a few weeks in Kazakhstan. Which is a country that does get featured very often outside of Borat and Southeast Asia and a bit of time in in the islands of Fiji so a pretty diverse group locations. This season going to be a great great. I really dug the bill. The underwater goes on. That was like that took it to a whole new. It was. It was really great for us to you know we. We filmed in these islands and Micronesia truck. And there's just all these championships from the Second World Wars have settled down in this In the deep water there and to be able to go down there and penetrate those rats and dies in the shadow of you know this War is always it was Pretty intense stuff but it was. It was great to be able to. I'm happy with off. So he tells about how they're shooting schedule is set up inciting some great locations. From last season's we tend to film in three months blocks or blocks and We just three months overseas. And we'll be doing. Some episodes in the Pacific will be Guam and Micronesia so great islands there that don't featured. I think nearly enough have a lot of interesting history and so we'll be doing stuff there. We do a great overnight show. Anchor Watt in Cambodia which is largest religious building in the world and a place hasn't been filmed at night very often. So that's that's something really looking forward to Ten Days in Siberia So we go from hot to cold and and then we'll be going through North Africa down in East Africa and then a couple of episodes in Madagascar which another place that is. I think not you know featured enough on. Cd has an amazing biodiversity. So much great creatures. We're looking for paranormal episodes and always a lot of travel season ahead. Oh skadden I actually have a bit of a competition with the president of the channel who were always compared you know comparing our yearly mileage levels but he always always beats me out amazing perching out. Sometimes you know. They certainly with with the stories that we go after like Lake. Monsters are great examples. Some some towns where there's a sighting of a late creature they go onto it and go. This is an opportunity for us to get people here so you know occasionally you will find places that really latch onto the stories that we go after and try to use it as a promotional tool but I think you know for the most part you know we tend to try to seek out stories that are current that are in the news right now and they're not necessarily things like the Loch ness monster which should have long established thing so really. If something just happens we try to kind of jump on it right away and so often. We're sort of there before the publicity machine cranks out Trying TO GET PEOPLE OVER THERE. Somebody who's just think they heard that Kidney News played the shot a macabre in. I don't know where it was. It was just in the news of the day. I this kid shot a dog but No you don't think for us it's really about. It's about the different cultures that country. So we're always trying to go to new places got kind of hit list of you know wishlist place. We want to go on the show. We've we've managed to go to a lot of it. So hopefully in the next season will be able to take a few more of those off the list and looking for us. It's really about bringing our viewers to place. They have been doing before exposing them to interesting the stories but the culture of the country. So we've got lots of places left to go. He's busy in this lease Brazil. We went to Brazil In the beginning of second season briefly in Amazon with a with a story there Munaf Senate and in various tributaries the Amazon. But you know. Brazil is like A number of other big countries in the world. Where you you go there and you think I'm going to go to Brazil do Priscilla when you get there and you realize how big it is and that you're gonNA scratch service so hopefully we'll return to Brazil We did China last year China. And you realize it's hopeless like you never gonNa see all China too big so we would love to return there. It's obviously incredible place. You guys like the Indiana Jones. Investigators kind of our move and we try to I. I think that for us for these stories that we do whether it's a creature story or paranormal story. We really try to do them in places where the actual location is as much of a character is anything else in it you know. We want our viewers really brought in by the culture that we're going to so we we try to choose their locations carefully to places that are themselves really dynamic and an interesting and he describes shooting very key episode last year in. Tibet. That really was our white whale. You know we. We had that on the list forever. We it's so difficult to not just to travel there to bring television show. There is so hard the little things cowering equipment and all that stuff is no infrastructure. Down there you know at all so it was something we talked about doing from the very beginning of the show and it was. It was a long time coming in as that we were able to pull it off and you know but we still have that list of other places. WanNa try to go to you know. There are some amazing parts of the world that have been off limits to this amazing sponsors central northern Africa. That really dangerous that we'd love to go to with mixed to to bat. I would love to do that on the show. Some other spots in the Himalayas. There are plenty of spots not at the bottom of the world that are still very challenging to get to and difficult to get access so we still got lots of challenges. He wants wondered if they would ever run out of story. It's a lot of travel right. We spent about half a year overseas. I think we first started the show. We had this fear that we would run out of things to look for. You know and certainly I do think there is a finite amount of things that people are en masse reporting seeing right. It's not every day. Some one hundred people see a lake monster or something but we've really discovered as we've traveled every we go to a country to a story. We'll hear five other stories while we're there. You know that there are these really great kind of unsolved unknown mysteries around the world and now feels like we could. We could really do it for a long time As long as we can keep on keeping want to get on a plane every every year but I think right now we all still see it as it's a real privilege and it's really fun to get paid to travel for me and I can't think of a better job to have ever tried to a couple episodes of the states. This cycle didn't season five point. Oh that we just found but I'm sure that in In the back half season you might. There are a number of big stories here. We've never never done a bigfoot story in US southeast sort of King of King of the did so Yeah we like to stuff here. In the states to trying to find a way to show aspects of culture that are a little off to be passed so It's a pope. Who will come back and do some feature his. We've legend Westwood sexually similar some of the stuff as you're like Vincent inside both titles you have your established stairs kind of you know. Kinda give you some wiggle. Yeah look I think that's actually seen a note from your the other week and I was overseas which I haven't seen it yet but I think that there's a real total difference in the shows. You know what I mean. It and is obviously a symbol expert in his areas of expertise are different. Take one of the things that we really tried to make a core part of density. Truth is the comedy misadventure. You know this sort of you know what it takes to get there. And all the sort of hijacks that go along with that because that's a big part of travel and and so You know I think there's a real difference in the tonality of the two shows in terms of the subject matter. I'm sure there'll be a few areas where crosses over but it was a lot of stories out there a Lotta legends myths. So I think it should burn forever. Yeah I would say that the worst wars that we've had is. We lost our first story and season four in India. We India is a place. That's a real natural fit with a show. It's an amazing vibrant culture. It's difficult to travel around India. So it's great for us because you can you know a lot of misadventure to travelling and it's a very bureaucratic place. It's it's a tough place to permit and we had. We were along the path trying to permit a trip to India and it fell through the do it. So it's probably our most difficult challenges. We are able to get ourselves really in there with the shank. The other troubles happened kind of at the tribal level. You know you get in these very small small cultures where you know. There's the cheap and you kind of have to kiss his ring and go through a lot of you know. Local sort of ceremony stopping and that requires a lot of delicate negotiations. The book is coming out in the in the fall. September October. But it's done. I'm happy to say it's You know I finished it and And I'm really looking forward to coming out. It was a lot of work. There's there's gather is a bit of it in there. It's not primarily a photo book. It's mostly about the show and there. There are some photos in there and I'm really proud of it. I've never written anything like that before and I chose to do it. Maybe foolishly without a ghost rider or that an assistant. I wanted to really do it myself. And and dig into it so that was probably a mistake Only because it took me a lot longer than I than I think it would. If I'd had help lead in the end I can really say that he did it myself. And so Helping it. I'm a big Fan of Southeast Asia. I Love Thailand and Cambodia Vietnam Laos that whole region I love and so we were able to spend a couple of weeks in Vietnam this last season. Just something about that whole region is just so attractive to me. The people are so wonderful part of the world and the cultures are really vibrant. And I think if I cash out and just Spanish one day that's where you can look for me as Post beach somewhere in Thailand proudly. Yeah we tend to work with call fixer or a of of producer each country who helps achieve things at a local level language barriers. And things like that. So we meet all these really interesting producers in various parts of the world. We maintain really strong relationships with them. We've got a great producer in the Amazon. You know great friends in Egypt. All over the world and At a local level to also fascinating people sometimes very out of the way places and trade emails and you get into these long sort of pen pal relationships folks across the world so yeah hi. I'm George Decay and I listened to Sifi Talk..
