Today marks the last day Mr. Gates will be a blue badge employee at Microsoft. I wonder if that means he'll come back as a consultant, which means that his rate will probably be double or triple what we paid him as an employee.
I occasionally get asked if I've been able to meet him while I've been a Microsoft employee. No, but I did meet him back when I was working for IBM when he keynoted at an OS/2 conference. Boy was that a long time ago.
For those of who haven't seen it yet, here's a link to the Bill Gates Last Day Video shown at the CES '08.
