15 May Listening to Bill
When Bill Gates talks, we listen. He is a technological prophet, ultimate data geek and now a full time philanthropist, since he stepped down in his position from the Microsoft board.
Years ago he gave a TED talk (2015) predicting this exact respiratory pandemic, the one we face today, COVID-19. He wasn’t the only one, he does get most of the publicity though. Scientists on the whole have been ignored or underfunded by society for decades and now we have a problem.
In an interview on Ezra Klein’s podcast Bill said, we prepare for all manner of scenarios, usually war-like, but biological threats, we have no plan and a severe case of unpreparedness. This interview is a great compilation of what might happen next in the world, from the man with foresight and smarts who has been studying global data and science for decades. Go forth and listen up.
