UPDATE, 11:55 a.m.: Here’s a transcript of Gates’ answers


From how much money is in his wallet to his thoughts on SOPA, here’s your chance to ask Bill Gates, well, anything.

The Microsoft co-founder and chairman is doing his first Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) today at 10:45 a.m. PST. Here are some of the top-rated questions so far:

  • What are your thoughts on the push against the open and free Internet that we have been seeing in the recent past and present (such as sopa, etc)?
  • What one Microsoft program or product that was never fully developed or released do you wish had made it to market?
  • How do you feel about the open source movement?
  • Since becoming wealthy, what’s the cheapest thing that gives you the most pleasure?
  • What do people give you for your birthday, given that you can buy anything you want?

We’ll be following the AMA and will post an update with Gates’ answers shortly. Check out the video below of Gates answering a few questions ahead of time.
