Bill Gates Looks Ahead, Defends Software Security

Andrea L. Foster, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Aug 02, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Chronicle's interview with Bill Gates is now on available on the free section of the site (it was behind the subscription barrier yesterday). For all that, it's a pretty tepid interview. Gates's view of e-learning seems to be students in class holding tablet computers. Three questions on security (oh yes, everything is fine) were followed by one on open source. According to Gates: "the technical-research things we (Microsoft) do with universities are done where the source code is open, shared collaboratively, and worked on." One wonders how true that statement is.
