Bill Gates, Craig Mundie: Microsoft Government Leaders Forum -- Asia 2007

Update to my NYT article-related post this morning:  Bill Gates is definitely familiar with the work of Muhammad Yunus, as this 2007 speech transcript indicates -- Gates, Craig Mundie, and Yunus co-presented at the Microsoft Government Leaders Forum last April in Beijing.

To elaborate on the context for my post: I was intrigued by the "conspicuously missing" theme after reading about Gates' "creative capitalism" thinking and reading a review of the recent Yunus book last week. 

Thanks to the folks at Microsoft (Waggener Edstrom, to be precise) who brought this to my attention.  It's a very timely and important topic domain, and it's good to know the dots are all connected.
