Bill Gates De-Retiring?

Bill Gates has never been one to sit still. In fact, if you've ever met him or seen him, you know he literally can't sit still, but instead rocks forward and backward as he talks.

Those who thought the energetic Gates would retire from his day-to-day Microsoft duties to play Canasta were sadly misinformed. Besides heading The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and remaining chairman of Microsoft, Bill has a brand new gig: bgC3.

This new concern is a think-tank with goals similar to his foundation: To look at the big issues that affect our world -- and perhaps help. This is still very much in stealth mode, as you'll see when you click on www.bgc3.com.
