Bill Gates Participates in Reddit’s Ask Me Anything

February 12th, 2013 at 4:53 am

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has achieved another level of cool as he became the “man of the hour” during Reddit‘s “Ask Me Anything” interview. Gates became the latest among the prominent personalities who have taken part of this, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Korean rapper PSY, and United States President Barack Obama.

The crowdsourced-style online interview, affectionately called “AMA” by Reddit’s users, features one prominent personality who answers questions posted by the site’s users. The queries range from the serious (“How did you feel about your portrayal in Pirates of Silicon Valley, and who do you want to play you next in a movie?”), to the philosophical (“What is something that needs to be changed in the world, but money wont help?”), to the downright personal (“Anything left on your bucket list?”).

Redditors also asked Gates about his relationship with Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple; the causes being supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and his opinion about the current state and the future of technology.

Before he started his AMA, Gates even answered in advance some common questions asked on Reddit through a YouTube video, including the mind-boggling, “Which would you rather fight: 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?”

Gates’ response: “Not sure about the specifics, but in general, I like taking on big problems; things like new vaccines. So I guess you call that a horse-sized duck.”
