Micro Persuasion: Our Sixty Minutes with Bill Gates Steve Rubel, along with Liz Gaines, Mike Arrington and others has a run down of an event where 14 bloggers were invited to Microsoft for the day ending the event with a Q&A; with Microsoft Founder Bill Gates.
An hour of Bill Gates’ day I’m sure is worth quite a bit to Microsoft. Inviting a bunch of top bloggers up there was a smart thing. Microsoft and their PR firm Waggener Edtrom have done a better job at embracing bloggers than just about any company out there. Providng them this level of access to Gates creates enormouse goodwill.
