News & Opinion: Bill and Warren go to College
Jack sent me a note this morning. He saw a PBS special that had Bill Gates and Warren Buffet speaking at University of Nebraska. He thought it was way cool and wanted me to find whatever I could.
This presentation at Nebraska was actually their second college appearance. In 1998, they did a student event at the University of Washington. The event Jack is talking about took place last year. The links I am pointing you to is Fortune's coverage of both.
There is a small clip on the University of Nebraska, and you can buy a DVD of the Nebraska event from the PBS Store.
