The Seattle Times: Microsoft: Gates draws a chuckle over his "Davos Doodles"

The Seattle Times: Microsoft: Gates draws a chuckle over his "Davos Doodles": "The British press believed the 'Davos Doodles' belonged to Prime Minister Tony Blair, who gave a presentation with Gates at the forum last week, and published handwriting analyses concluding that the note scribbler was a nervous person lacking natural leadership abilities.
'They said he wasn't a natural leader, he was nervous, a lot of things,' Gates recounted yesterday during a speech at an Office System software-developers conference on Microsoft's Redmond campus. 'Well, they forgot to check whose doodles those were. Actually they were my doodles, and so I thought I'd let you know exactly what I had (written).'
Gates displayed a page of scribbled notes on large display screens, then zoomed in for a closer look at several passages: 'Why does Bill Clinton get to sit next to Angelina Jolie?' the first said. The next said 'I miss Clippy,' and included a drawing of the animated paper clip that provided user tips in older versions of Office. "
