This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we share a highlight from Bill Gates’ appearance at the University of Washington, explain a notable expansion of Seattle startup Cheezburger’s business, and talk about a key takeaway from entrepreneur Rich Barton’s appearance at the GeekWire Meetup.
