When Bill Gates ran Microsoft every day, his internal memos set the company's course for such radical shifts as the rise of the Internet. Now, Gates is making his musings public on a new Web site called The Gates Notes.
There, the chairman of Microsoft and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has started posting his opinion on topics from the international response to the H1N1 pandemic to the book "Super Freakonomics."
The site collects Gates' thoughts via video, podcasts and written notes. It includes his responses to books, online courses and conversations with experts in such fields as clean energy and education.
Gates, who also recently signed up for a Twitter account, says he plans to update the Gates Notes site regularly.
