Bill Gates To Launch Cryptic Think Tank Company Called bgC3

It seems that Bill Gates is unlikely to take a break even after he has left his duties at Microsoft with TechFlash reporting that he has set up a new venture called bgC3 LLC.

TechFlash (opens in new tab) has mentioned that new venture is essentially a think tank and in essence is "a vehicle to coordinate the software mogul's work on his business, philanthropic and scientific endeavours.”

Incidentally TechFlash is a new website launched by Todd Bishop, an acclaimed former reporter with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and this news story is surely going to make good start for the new site.

For those of you who thought that Bill Gates would lead a retire life engaged in philanthropy, this new development would come as a surprise.

Even though Bill Gates earlier expressed his desire to focus on Philanthropy the new does throw up the prospect that he may just be postponing such plans for some time and may even engage in something substantial to change the world.
