Bill Gates is Doing a Reddit AMA Right Now

As Reddit grows in popularity, more and more big names are doing AMAs on the site. For those not in the know, an AMA is an 'Ask Me Anything,' post on Reddit. Famous AMAers in the past have included everyone from Snoop Lion to President Barack Obama.


About an hour ago, former Microsoft CEO and founder Bill Gates added himself to the list with a post titled, "I'm Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. AMA."

Gates explains in his post that while many people know him from his Microsoft days, his full time work these days is with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a private foundation that he runs with his wife Melinda. No doubt many of the questions he gets will be about computers, technology, and the internet (indeed, the top voted question relates to the push against the open and free Internet). Still, it should be an interesting read, so head on over to Reddit and check it out!

As a bonus, Gates decided to answer some of the more important and press questions ahead of time. These include, "How much money is in your wallet?" and "Can I have a million dollars?" Check out the answers to those questions in the video below.
