Yahoo! It's Bill Gates!

The third richest man in the world blew into town last week for a few events. One of them was the Microsoft sponsored Government Leaders Forum held at Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables.

Bill showed up for a few photo ops and made a speech that capped off the two day event which is designed to "bring together government leaders to exchange experiences and discuss issues related to technology and innovation for social development" according to the forum's website.

I was hired by one of the forum's sponsors to document certain events.

The highlight for me was to be able to stand a few feet from one of the wealthiest and most influential men of the past century.

I couldn't really make an educated judgment about the man except to notice that he probably needs to get out a little more and work on a tan. Another observation was that he apparently doesn't travel anywhere without an army of publicists.
