Valleywag is reporting that Bill Gates did something straight out of an Onion story at the TED conference (short for technology, entertainment and design) when he unleashed a swarm of mosquitoes to make a point about his foundation’s efforts to combat malaria. As quoted from a Facebook manager’s Twitter post, Gates said:
“Not only poor people should experience this.”
There isn’t much I can add to this story other than I wish I could get away with something this brilliant. No word on if they actually carried Malaria or West Nile…I’m guessing not.
