Dude...this guy (worth 44 Billion USD) is going to be giving away 85% of his wealth to Bill and Melinda Gates. How fucking cool is that? I read a story in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer a few days ago about how Bill hopes that his lead into philanthropy will cause a trend.

I think this is one of the coolest things anyone could do....since the B&M Gates Foundation has done so much already and now that they're getting into some serious diseases that affect Africa and Asia every year....why NOT give a shitton of cash to them?

Thumbs Up, Warren....Thumbs Up.

Good to see that not everyone is a ridiculously greedy cunt. I haven't done the maths, but he will obviously still have a lot of money left. No one needs 44 billion, and this guy has obviously seen that. This is really great to hear.

Hopefully some others will follow his lead.
