Revolution in AI research?
That's all I can figure, because how else could Bill Gates get a sense of humor? Look at this Wired article
that describes Gates getting downright wacky at CES. He dressed up like Austin Powers and said things like "I put the sin in syntax, baby." Steve Ballmer played Dr. Evil (he's always kinda looked the part, I suppose). Then Gates and Warren Buffet apparently did a skit with Judge Judy.
Other highlights included Leslie Nielsen as Bob Dole in an impotence parody involving hard drives. Wow, a Bob Dole skit on impotence; can't beat these guys for originality.
Oh yeah, and apparently Gates talked about the future of computing, yadda, yadda, yadda. There's something tacked on the end of the article about that too. Go check it out.
