Bill's Excellent Adventure!
Ok, finally! After decades of totally lame presentations, demos and WAY too many Powerpoint slides with WAY too many words per slide, Bill Gates pulled a masterful opening to his TED presentation worthy of Steve Jobs's famous "One more thing".
Bill was giving a talk on Malaria and what his foundation is doing world wide to impact its effect on nations in poverty. To make his point, he started by releasing mosquitos into the room with the statement, "Malaria is spread by mosquitos, I brought some."
